Marco Polo Corfu: the Travel Guide with Insider Tips

Experience all of Corfu’s attractions with this up-to-date, authoritative guide, complete with ‘Best Of’ recommendations. You’ll discover excellent hotels, restaurants, trendy places, nightlife venues, plus shopping tips, suggestions for those on a tight budget, details of all the sports and activities on offer and ideas for Travel with Kids.

Corfu, Greece’s greenest island, is like a tightly woven carpet covered with 3 million ancient and gnarled olive trees. Countless blossoms ensure year-round dashes over colour amidst all the dominant green.

MARCO POLO Corfu leads you to beautiful bays, long beaches beneath spectacular coasts, white cliffs and evergreen forests as well as to the splendid legacies of European powers that left their mark mainly in the island’s capital. As one of the most popular of all Greek islands, Corfu offers a multitude of attractions and lots to enjoy. Water sports, mountain biking and relaxation can be just as much part of your holiday as great cuisine, hip beach bars and romantic sunsets.

The Insider Tips reveal where royalty used to bathe and which trail you can use to explore the entire island. The Best Of pages highlight some unique aspects of Corfu, recommend places to go for free, and contain tips for rainy days and where you can relax and chill out. You’ll find out What’s Hot in Corfu, whether walking on water with Aqua Striders or Sirtáki revival. Trips & Tours take you up the highest mountain, across to the island of Páxos and even as far as the ancient city of Butrint in Albania.

Corfu might not be a top sports destination, but in the Sports & Activities chapter you can still find out where you can try something unusual like being flung into the air on a bungee rocket. Finally the Dos & Don’ts point out some of the things you need to be aware of and watch out for when visiting the island.

MARCO POLO Corfu provides comprehensive coverage of the island. To help you find your way around there’s a detailed road atlas inside, a folding map of Corfu Town in the backcover, plus a handy pull-out map.
