Anniversary of the Union on a Corfu holiday

The celebration marks the day when Corfu was joined with the Greek State and holiday makers on the island at the time can expect plenty of feasts and general revelling.

May 21st 1864 was the exact date that the Ionian Islands were joined with the rest of Greece and a huge banquet celebrates the important occasion that welcomes both holiday makers and locals alike.

Visitors to the island can also see the Monument of the Union, known locally as the Kapodistria, which can be found in the Spianada square.

Holiday makers can also enjoy long walks and lazy days beside the private villa pool.

Alternatively, a day on one of Corfu's many beaches is bound to tempt anyone looking for a relaxing and sunny break.
