Corfu – “island of eternal returns”
Corfu is one of the most cosmopolitan islands in the Ionian Sea. If you have ever wondered what a Greek island might look like with the buildings of the Venetian school of architecture and a slight train of English and French influences, then you definitely need to visit Corfu! It is no coincidence that for many centuries Corfu has remained a tasty morsel for all sorts of conquerors appearing in the region. The magical island with olive groves and pine trees that fill the air with the incomparable and unforgettable smell of the Mediterranean has always been well known and is mentioned in ancient Greek mythology under the name Scheria – the place where the legendary Odysseus, on the way to his native island of Ithaca, meets with beautiful princess of Nausicaa.
