For centuries Corfu's magnetic beauty has attracted travellers, who have sung the praises of the peacock-hued bays, the hillsides drenched in silvery-green olive trees, and the emerald greenness of the countryside. This pocket-sized guide focuses on walking in Corfu, but it is not intended only for walkers.
The touring section will show you the best of the island by car, and the picnic suggestions make an excellent introduction to the countryside. There are walks for all ages and abilities on Corfu, from strolls to beaches to challenging day-long hikes - in the mountains or criss-crossing the plains.
Many of these day walks take in parts of the long-distance Corfu Trail. While time brings change, the pristine Corfu so beloved of Lear and the Durrell brothers can still be found - this guide tells you where.
It turns the island inside out and helps you find a Corfu unknown to most tourists. 4 car tours (and accompanying touring map), 50 long and short walks (each illustrated with 1:50,000 topo map), 25 picnic suggestions.

Recommended Provider of Guidebooks. The real Corfu is not hard to find. The best solution is to buy Landscapes of Corfu.
