With its luxuriantly leafy landscape, packed with olive trees, fruit groves and Italian Cypresses, this Greek island is distinctively rich and leafy—and the best things to do on Corfu prove that. It’s a stunning contrast with the turquoise-blue of the Ionian Sea that surrounds it. This lush landscape has been home to the Venetians, French and British. (So much so, you’d think you were standing in Italy or France.) The architectural influences they left behind are very much a part of the experience here. You’ll spot buildings with colonnades, promenades, wrought-iron balconies, shuttered windows and terracotta rooftops. Corfu’s pedestrian-only old town is the best example of this. Beyond it, beautiful sights, idyllic beaches and ornate palaces are also waiting to be explored.
