Corfu Town/Mouse Island Cruise is a way to avoid hot crowded buses, sailing down the calm waters of the channel to the picturesque capital of Corfu.


In 2007 Corfu town was designated a Unesco World Heritage site. You will sail passed the walls of the old fort (used in the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only) to moor in the old port where it is only a few minutes walk into the pedestrian centre of this historic town.


There is a myriad of shops selling some of Corfu’s best souvenirs from leather goods and furs to ceramics and leather.


The Liston (pictured right) is the place to be seen. Smart coffee bars line the street overlooking the old fort, the palace of St Michael and St George (which is a museum of Asian art) and the old cricket pitch. The Liston is a good place to relax and soak up the atmosphere with a cold beer or perhaps a Corfiot ginger beer!


For those more interested in the sites than shopping, you will not be disappointed. You can enter the Old and New Forts, but need to be respectfully dressed to enter the famous Church of St Spiridon (pictured below right) with its tall red campanile.

There is a proper fish and fruit and vegetable market set just outside the walls of the new Fort. (Mornings only).


The British cemetery is a garden full of orchids in spring and the headstones tell the tale the chequered history of Corfu. The pedestrian alleys in the old town are full of echos of its Venetian history.

The Archaeological museum is off Garitsa bay behind the Corfu Palace hotel.


On leaving the town we take a side trip south the see one of Corfu’s most photographed sites - Mouse island. (Pictured right)


A wonderful addition to the holiday photograph album!
