11 Beautiful Places You Need To See In Corfu, Greece; Lloyd; Hand Luggage Only

Greece – Old Town of Corfu

There are some places across Europe that just seem under-rated, not because of how popular/unpopular they are or even because of how beautiful (or otherwise) they are but instead because of how familiar they’ve become. Corfu is one of those places.

I’d been to Corfu several times as a kid with my family and (as you do when you’re a kid), I didn’t really spend much time thinking about the island… I think I was more concerned with ice-cream and making the most epic of sandcastles.

Standing at the back of the high speed ferry and watching Rhodes dip below the horizon, it was easy to see why locals call the sea the ‘endless blue’.
