What's Old Fortress like

The Old Fortress, otherwise known as Paleo Frourio is a Venetian fort in the capital Kerkyra close to Spianada square and the Liston on the east coast of Corfu.

In the daytime it costs 6€ for adults with kids getting in free. In the evenings entrance is free for everyone. Once inside you’ll find a number of exhibits with information explaining them. There is also a lighthouse at the top of some steep steps, it’s a bit of effort to make your way up but you’ll be rewarded with fantastic views of the harbour, Kerkyra and on a clear day out to Albania and mainland Greece too.

Facilities on site or nearby the old fortress include a café serving snacks and drinks as well as toilets and a car park that costs 3€, alternatively you can park on the street outside, that’s if you can find a space.

The old fort is definitely worth a visit for anyone that has an appreciation of history and wants to learn about Corfu’s strategic position in Europe as well as being great for those that just want to spend an hour wandering round and taking in the views.
