    hrs Estimate Duration
  • Meal

Explore a centuries-old Venetian fortress overlooking Corfu’s Old Town and then savor traditional Greek dishes and delicacies at a waterfront restaurant. UNESCO has designated the historical district a World Heritage site because of the authenticity and integrity of the urban fabric and its fortresses of Venetian origins. The town’s so-called Old Fortress was constructed on a rocky promontory in the 15th century on the site of a former Byzantine castle. As you explore the restored fortification, be sure to notice the Venetian symbol on the arched entrance and a small chapel nearby, where prisoners were once held in chains before being executed. The British destroyed many of the original Venetian structures and constructed their own buildings within the Old Fortress, the most prominent being the Church of St. George. Just behind the fortress, you will find the Sailing Club, where you will enjoy local delicacies and wine. The restaurant overlooks a small marina and specializes in Mediterranean seafood dishes.
