Here’s a quick run-down of the itinerary in the link above.
Arriving the day before, you should be ready to go on your first full day of exploring!
To get a sense of your surroundings, head to the Old Town and explore its incredibly charming. Make sure to check out St. Spyridon Church, a 16th-century Greek Orthodox church and also the most famous church in Corfu, and The Palace of St. Michael and St. George, a neoclassical building that was originally the residence of the British Lord High Commissioner of the Ionian Islands. Some areas to walk around include the Liston Promenade and the Spianada Square Esplanade. Once you’ve wandered around for a couple of hours, head to the Old Fortress. The fort successfully repelled all three major Ottoman sieges against the island!
For lunch, there are so many great options in town but I recommend Pane e Souvlaki. It’s where you can get, of course, souvlaki. It’s also right in the middle of town, a great location.
After lunch, take a local bus to Kanóni, where you can get a spectacular view of Vlachérna, a beautifully set convent out on an islet. There’s a cafe right when you get off the bus, so be sure to stop by for some Greek coffee. Once you head down to the islet, you can take a short boat ride to Mouse Island.
As you’ve now explored the entirety of the town of Corfu, it’s time for a day trip to another part of the island! Take another local bus to Palaiokastritsa Beach, considered the most beautiful beach on the island. Spend the day here, roaming around the various beaches in the area. Once you head back to the town of Corfu, I recommend going for an evening stroll and having dinner at a traditional tavern, like Tsipouradiko Ektos Shediou.
