Last week me and Pete came back to Corfu after our Easter Holidays in Florina. Of course Corfu Town has changed a lot from the moment I saw it last time. Almost all shops, tavernas and touristic places are open, you can see a lot of people everywhere, the weather is hot and sunny and the rhythm of local life definitely changed to "Greek Summer Mood". Since I can call myself a citizen of Corfu Island, I'm gonna share with you 10 tropical things to do here.
1. TRY ICE CREAM FROM PAPAGIORGIS.
I'm not a big fan of ice cream but I can't express with my words how delicious and fantastic ice cream you can try in Kerkyra. In the centre of Corfu Old Town, you can find the historic pastry shop Papagiorgis, being a reference point for the entire island. Make sure to visit the place and buy things to try.
Address of the shop PapaGiorgis: 32 Nikiforou Theotoki, Corfu, Kerkira, Greece 49100
2. BUY GREEK HANDMADE LEATHER SANDALS.
I know that all tourists in Greece want to buy Olive Oil or Olives, but isn't it not more interesting to spend some time in finding the perfect pair of sandals for you and your family? Shops of Corfu Town can offer you a lot of models in any color, price and place.
3. WALK IN TOWN STREETS FOR FIND CUTE HOUSES.
All year long I'm writing in my blog about the cute little streets and houses of Corfu. There is something absolutely simple, soulful and precious in them.
4. EXPLORE THE FLORA OF CORFU
Corfu is the "greenest" island of Greece. The Island seems to be entirely covered in trees, olive trees in particular, creating a beautiful green blanket covering the rolling hills and mountains that make up the landscape. Everywhere you look the greenery stands out, which accentuates the true natural beauty of the island.
5. BUY GREEK COSMETICS.
Last few years I'm obsessed with Natural Greek Cosmetics Brands as Korres and Apivita. It's something what you need to try once and after you will not want to apply anything else on your skin or hair. Pharmacies with the products you can find almost everywhere in Corfu Town.
6. TRY COLD GREEK COFFEE.
All summer long I'm drinking Freddo Espresso. However there are a lot of types of cold coffee in Greece. Have fun by trying to find your favorite one. Best place to go - Coffee Island in the centre of town.
7. MAKE PHOTOS.
There is a beauty everywhere in Corfu. Feel free to shoot a lot and enjoy the moment. The pictures taken on this island are my favorite ;)
8. EAT FISH.
Never forget that you are in the island and try to eat as much fish as you can. After you will go to home from here, you will be ready to give everything for the plate with local Corfu fishes.
9. TRY THE SWEETEST RED WINE IN TAVERNA.
When we are on holidays - we love to relax. The best thing to do it is to try sweet red wine from local winemakers. You can find it in every taverna of the island, but don't forget to ask the sweetest one.
10. GO TO SEE THE SUNSET.
There are different types of sunsets in Corfu depending on the time of the year. The important thing is all of them are unforgettable and incredibly beautiful.
Well my list could be even longer because Corfu is the place which inspires you to be creative, productive and open minded!
Speaking about my outfit, the day we went out I was wearing cute summer Off the Shoulder Dress from Changla Store in charming white and blue striped pattern. Need to mention that it's the most popular color combination in women fashion for this season because it looks fresh, pretty and chic. Definitely the top of tropical essentials of your wardrobe.
Concerning the shoes, I was walking out my new Color Block Buckle Square Toe Pumps from Zaful. It's a great option for time like now while the weather is warm, but not too hot for open toe shoes like sandals yet. As extra details I picked the bracelets, Basket Bag and Round Glasses.
