About The Liston

The Liston is a beautiful building that runs down one side of Spianáda square, it’s widely considered the heart of Corfu town and consists of Napoleonic style arcade terraces. The Liston was built in 1807 by the French imperial commissioner Mathieu de Lesseps and is reminiscent of St Marks square in Venice.

The Liston is a great place to spend an afternoon with a coffee, cold beer, cocktail or glass of wine and watch the world go by. There is an enormous choice of restaurants so you could eat in a different one every evening if you wanted or just pop by to soak up the atmosphere.

As you’d expect with the Liston being a popular tourist destination it’s not the cheapest place to eat/drink but it’s worth the small extra cost.

If you’re staying in Corfu Town then chances are you’ll visit the Liston a few times during your stay. If you’re coming from somewhere else on the island then it’s easy to combine it with a day trip to the main town where you can take in the old fortress, the new fortress and the British cemetery too.ERE
