Awarded destination for 2014
Welcome to the island of Corfu
Today, Corfu ranks amongst Europe’s most fascinating destinations.
Marked by intriguing contrast and consecutive influences, the island is a crossroads of colors and civilizations.
It is located in the northern Ionian Sea, at the entrance to the Adriatic Sea, between Greece’s mainland and Italy. Due to its strategic position in the Mediterranean Sea, the island has been
“the apple of discord” among the big powers of each era. Furthermore, its position enables visitors today to reach the island by direct flight from almost all European countries, while there are daily ferry connections with many Italian ports.
The Mediterranean climate and the high quality of life make Corfu an ideal place to stay any
time of the year. The winter is mild with relatively high temperatures (7-200 C) and sunshine for approximately 4,5 hours per day, so one can often go on excursions to admire Corfu’s beautiful nature. Springtime, with the ceaseless colour alternations is undoubtedly amazing!
During summertime, the fascinating beaches, the cosmopolitan atmosphere and the uncountable traditional festivals guarantee a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. In autumn, time has come to take your last plunge into the warm sea waters.
