If you fancy a change from traditional Greek cuisine, why not check out the excellent Da Giovanni restaurant in the centre of town. As the name suggests, this is an Italian eating house run by a restaurateur from Naples.

If you happen to be driving around the west side of the island, stop by Elizabeth's, a unique family-run eatery established in the 1940s. Sample a bit of homestyle pastitsada and potatoes with peas. Located in Doukades village, just inland from Paleokastritsa.

Get out of town and explore the Byzantine ruins of Angelokastro. Located on the highest peak near Paleokastritsa, this 305m (1,000ft) citadel served as the capital of Corfu from the 14th to the 16th centuries. It was a main fortification in defence against possible Venetian invaders.

The most worthwhile day trip is a ferry to Sarande in Albania, for the Roman ruins of Butrint. There are only a few ferries a day, so be sure to plan your trip accordingly. Alternatively, you can charter a boat out to the Diapondia Islands, just northwest of Corfu.
