Corfu is the second largest island of the Ionian Sea. The island of Faiakes, as it is called in Homer's Odyssey, is a place that has assimilated harmoniously the different influences of cultures and peoples whose long stay on the island has left an indelible mark.
Corfu has a distinct architectural style. The palaces, the fortresses, the museums, the libraries, the galleries, the temples and the traditional mansions turn this island into an ideal destination not only for the summer months. Corfu has a strong musical tradition, as the streets during the day are inundated by music. Last but not least, keep in mind that the island is also famous for its wonderful local cuisine.
