Along the east side, there’s the ancient fortress on the sea, while on the west side there’s the more modern one, both open to visitors, offering amazing views over the Adriatic Sea.
One of the most beautiful cities in Greece, Corfu has some jewels that really shouldn't be missed, like the picturesque Kanoni, the church of Panagia Vlacherna, the Mouse Island, and the Achilleion Palace, originally built as a summer retreat for Sissi, Empress Elisabeth of Austria.
