Old Town of Corfu
The Old Town of Corfu, on the Island of Corfu off the western coasts of Albania and Greece, is located in a strategic position at the entrance of the Adriatic Sea, and has its roots in the 8th century BC. The mainly neoclassical housing stock of the Old Town is partly from the Venetian period, partly of later construction, notably the 19th century. As a fortified Mediterranean port, Corfu's urban and port ensemble is notable for its high level of integrity and authenticity.
Set out on this excursion that is ideal both for photography enthusiasts and for those who just want to bring home the best possible holiday snaps. A local photographer will mentor you, offering practical hints on framing the best shots of the fascinating architectural features you will see today.
