Corfu is the most northerly island of the western Ionian chain, and is known as Kerkyra by the
Greeks. Immortalised in the 20th century by the Durrell brothers in their famous writings, Corfu is one of
the most well-visited of the Greek islands. The main town - Corfu Town - is a charming mix of British,
Italian, French and Greek. The old remaining Venetian buildings give a great ambience to the Old Town,
centred as it is between the two fortresses (the Old and the New).The English cricket ground is still there,
and on one of my visits a match was in progress. Yes there are Greek cricket teams! The Liston is the
area of the French-style arcades where superb desserts are served - nobody should miss a treat here.
Just roaming the narrow streets of the Old Town, looking at the shops and the old buildings
 is a very special indulgence.
