“Casa Parlante is a voyage back in time. The most alive historical museum in Corfu. A 19th century noble mansion comes to life with stories to tell. In the unique architectural setting of a classical mansion in the historic Old town of Corfu, the everyday life of the island’s 19th century nobility is recreated.”

Scenic lookouts

Scenic Lookout
“A Venetian fortress built in the 15th century. It is located right in front of the Spianada Square. You will be impressed by the architecture and the stunning views of Corfu town if you decide to reach the highest part of the fortress. We need to mention that the Ionian University and the historical archive are housed within the fortress.”

“On the highest spot of Pelekas Village, on a huge cliff, there is a monument called Kaiser’s Throne, a name given from the German Emperor Wilhelm the Second, who used to observe Corfu’s natural beauty every time he wished to escape from his routine. The idyllic sunset and the unique panoramic view will definitely stay vivid in your minds while the sun will sink into the sea and Corfu will constantly switch colours from one minute to the other. A truly majestic experience you do not want to lose!”

Scenic Lookout
“The fortress was built first by the Byzantines and was completed by the (Venetian: Fortezza Vecchia) and the British. Is built on a rocky peninsula with two characteristic hills (top) and is the eastern end of the city. The location of the peninsula lies to the east of the ancient city of "Corcyra", between the Gulf of Corfu to the north and the Gulf of Garitsa to the south. This location was an ideal choice as it allowed easy access to the maritime network and full control of the neighboring coasts, while high fortifications in combination with the artificial moat made it impossible for any raider to access. It is very well preserved and offers fantastic views to the visitors! Near there is the bay of Garitsa. Some say that Odysseus himself landed here, though others dispute whether Corfu is the same as the island of Phaeacs and the last stop of Odysseus before his final destination at Ithaca. ”

Island
“ For Vido Island you can take the boat from the old port of Corfu to where you are going there. There you can enjoy a walk in nature and following the paths end up on beautiful beaches. Also on the island you can sit for a meal in the beautiful tavern of the island along with the wandering animals of the island such as bunnies and partridges. ”
