Informations
Population: 109.537
Description: Corfu is identified by most archaeologists to the mythical island of the Phaeacians. Here Homer placed, according to those who accept the identification of Scheria to Corfu, the last station before Ithaca to which resourceful castaway Odysseus arrived. The island's history is rich, with sovereignty to be shifted by the Venetians and the French until independence, the British and finally union with Greece. The result is visible as the island and the town of Corfu are characterized by the Venetian elements, but also by many English and French influences. It is a cosmopolitan city that conveys a sense of nobility. The island has a natural beauty and therefore chosen by thousands of tourists, anonymous or famous vacation during the entire time since the days of Easter is, by tradition, in the top ten.
