Often called "Kastropolis" because of its majestic Venetian castle, Corfu Town once featured such extensive fortifications that a force of over 20,000 soldiers defended them.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sweet 'N Spicy Bahar Shop and Porto Timoni Beach. Relax by the water at Agios Gordios Beach and Paleokastritsa Beach.
