Corfu’s old city architectural character is strongly influenced by the Venetian style, coming as it did under Venetian rule for a long period its small and ancient side streets, and the old buildings' trademark arches are particularly reminiscent of Venice.
The effectiveness of the powerful Venetian fortifications as well as the strength of some old Byzantine castles in Angelokastro, Kassiopi Castle, Gardiki and elsewhere.
The north of the island is home to Mount Pantokrator, Corfu’s highest peak. The scenery is rugged and beautiful with scenic bays and coves, and the northeast has views across the water to the Albanian mainland.
The northeast side has beautiful calm clear waters and pebble/shingle beaches. Its small villages and harbors are perfect for exploration and provides you great photos to remember.
In the mainland of Corfu island, except of the old town there are the most tradional villages and some highlight spots as Palaiokastritsa area and Aggelokastro. Within short distance from Aggelokastro Castle, Lakones is a village on the foot of a verdant hill.
So this is a wonderful destination for hikers and nature enthusiasts. On the way to Aggelokastro, you will also find Makrades and Krini North Corfu villages. They are both charming and each of them boasts its own distinctive character.
South Corfu is dominated by endless sandy beaches and quite traditional villages.
The large traditional villages of the interior seem to be stuck in time, life flows slowly and does not seem to have changed much in recent years.
The same happens with the huge beaches they remain almost untouched by the uncontrolled tourist exploitation and preserve their natural beauty.
