The Esplanade in Corfu Town

Corfu Town is an example of the relaxed and tranquil environment of the island and holiday makers who visit the Esplanade will enjoy some of the local atmosphere.

The central square of Corfu Town features a French garden design and is surrounded by monuments and cafes.

It was transformed into a public square during the French occupation and locals and visitors alike spend their days relaxing and watching the events of the square.

The square is even host to an annual cricket game which was introduced during the time of English occupation and confirms the European influences on the relaxed environment.

Anyone looking for more excitement and activity can head to the beaches and countryside of the island where long walks are enjoyed by many locals and holiday makers.
