- Corfu was the only Greek island not conquered by the Turks.
- The island was the cradle of culture and science. In Corfu was founded the first university or Greece, called the IONIAN UNIVERSITY and the first modern theatre and opera of Greece.
- The island is famous for its large amounts of olive trees. There are about 4 thousand. 3% of the world`s olive oil comes from Corfu.
- Corfu is an ideal location for a keen walker. The North of the island is fairly rugged with mountains, whereas in the south is Korission Lake, an inland lake separated by a thin strip of sand from the sea.
Fishing is still very popular on the island. There are three natural lagoons where most of the smaller fish served on the island is produced whereas the fishing boats go after the larger, more desirable fish. This fish is not only very tasty but far less polluted than most parts of the World thanks to the lack of heavy industries and oil rigs.
