The historical and religious monuments, the picturesque villages, the beautiful nature, and the hospitality of the locals offer memories difficult to forget. Corfu Town is a gem for sightseeing with many monuments from Medieval times, including the Old Fortress, the New Fortress, Liston Promenade, and the Church of Saint Spyridon, protector of the island. Visitors should not miss the quarter of Kanoni, a bit outside Corfu Town, with the nice view to Mouse Island and the chapel of Panagia Vlacherna. Very impressive sights in Corfu are also the Achilleion Palace, the Monastery of Paleokastritsa, and the Fortress of Angelokastro.
As the island has largely developed in tourism, things to do in Corfu are many. Diving is an organized activity on the island, as the seabed of Corfu has many impressive reefs, underwater caves, and old shipwrecks. Particularly the northern side of the island is very popular for diving.
Few beaches on the southern side of Corfu island are great for windsurfing and kite surfing, however, these sports are not organized. This means that surfers have to bring their own equipment. The countryside of the island is also very popular for hiking. There are many old footpaths that cross Corfu and lead to Venetian castles, mountainous villages, olive groves, and secluded beaches.
