Corfu, Greece

Corfu (Kerkyra in Greek) is Greece’s island in Ionian Sea. The name Corfi is an Italian version of the Byzantine Koryphō (“city of the peaks”), denoting the two peaks of Palaio Frourio. Corfu has many museums, monuments and cultural centers, and the first modern Greek university was established here. Unlike the rest of Greece, Corfu never fell under the Ottoman rule, and was dominated by the Venetians, the French and the British over the centuries, which greatly influenced it’s culture.
