The town is a maze of narrow streets dominated by the 16th century fortress. Around every corner can you can find a chapel, old mansion or secret garden square. The café at the Liston: built by the French in the same style as those in Rue de Rivoli, Paris; is probably the place to 'people watch' while enjoying a Ginger beer. (The British also left Cricket, which was played on the pitch opposite the Liston. Sadly today, due to nearby parked cars, they no long play in this famous location.)

The narrow streets radiating off from the Liston, house small shops of every commercial nature. Dominated by the 'gold shops'. Corfiot craftsmen excel at designing and making Greek jewelry in gold - this coupled with competitive prices may tempt you.

Among the bustle, look out for those shops and stalls selling local items like wild honey, fig cakes and handmade lace.

St. Spiridon's Church, home to the island's patron 'mummified' saint, is just behind the Liston. The church is impressive and worth visiting, but  ensure you are suitably dressed.

Facing the Liston Esplanade is the Old Fort which was built between the 6th & 19th centuries. (The above panoramic picture was taken from the top.) It was built on a man made island and has some stunning architecture.

During the summer there are nightly musical performances of Sound & Light. (The second world war British hospital at the center of the fort has now been turned into a music school.) The fort is worth a visit during the day but only for those that enjoy a historical hot day out.

Don't though expect a guided tour - or even a guide book - you are on your own. Some may find the excellent Fort café a welcome retreat from the sun!
