Island of the Phaeacians
Designated as a World Heritage Site, Corfu retains many reminders of the island's Venetian, British, and French heritage.The northernmost of the Ionian Islands, the mild-weathered city made it into mythology as the idyllic place where Poseidon enjoyed marital bliss with the nymph Korkyra. Allegedly named after this mythical beauty, the island offers a blend of well-developed seaside areas and pristine mountain ranges, popular with both package tourists and casual backpackers. The island's top attraction remains the pleasant city of Corfu, an architectural gem made for sightseeing on foot. The island also serves as a convenient jumping-off point for tours of the Albanian and Italian coastlines.
