Walking holidays in Corfu
Why choose Corfu for your next walking holiday? Just a bit of background information to make you enthusiastic!
Corfu's situation between Greece and Italy, guarding the entrance to the Adriatic Sea, has over the centuries made it a desirable possession for invaders. The Ancient Greeks, the Romans, the Crusaders, the Venetians, the French and the British have all left their mark in buildings and landscapes, giving it a unique character, and ensuring there is lots to see and do.The people of Corfu, both those involved in tourism and those outside it, have a well-deserved reputation for hospitality and friendliness. Most will go the extra mile to make every holidaymaker feel welcome.
Whether on the coast or inland, Corfu is sufficiently large to boast an incredible variety of scenery, making it an ideal destination for activity holidays such as walking. Even travellers who have visited time and time again can always find new locations to explore. The islands' landscapes change through all seasons, with varieties of flora to be admired at each time of the year.
