Small Street, Corfu Town

Small Street, Corfu Town

The old part of Corfu City is filled with streets like this. Streets that were built thousands of years before cars even existed and now can only fit people and mopeds. It makes for relaxed walks through ancient architecture and nice sightseeing. There are places that are totally packed with tourists but it's not hard to take a few turns and find yourself on a relatively empty, interesting little thoroughfare. It's also where you can get away from the totally touristy shops and find stores that aren't quite so kitschy. Tourism has to account for nearly their entire economy so you're never really going to get totally away from it.

Not in Corfu City anyway. There are plenty of quiet places elsewhere on the island to lose all of the other tourists, relax and explore.
