We have gathered suggestions to enjoy the rainy days in Corfu making unique memories!
How to spend a rainy day in Corfu: Coffee first!
The Old Town is full of small streets, between the old buildings with their beautiful front doors and wooden windows. Every now and then a kind lady turns the corner with careful little steps to avoid slipping on the old flagstones. Every now and then a bourgeois holds his umbrella so that a lady who came down from the house can cross the street. And every now and then shopkeepers come out and pick up the dry leaves in front of their shops to allow the water to run off unhindered. All this and more can be enjoyed through the glass windows of a beautiful café while the drops roll before your eyes, making the sight even more romantic.
We recommend Puppet and Bristol on Eugeniou Voulgareos Street.
If on the other hand, you want to let your eyes wander around the large square and the Old Fortress, sit at Josephine or Liston Gastrotheque in the historic Liston building that reminds you of Paris!
Small breaths of culture.
Pick a museum and love it!
The Archaeological Museum: located on the outskirts of the Old Town, on Vraila Armeni Street, a few meters from the magical bay of Garitsa, which becomes particularly charming when the weather is wild. The archaeological museum hosts important findings from all the ancient historical periods of Corfu.
The living museum Casa Parlante in the center of the Old Town: This is an old house that recreates in a very realistic way the life of an urban family in the city.
The Municipal Gallery: it hosts great works of Corfu painters and in a way tells the history of Corfu. The space is classy and very welcoming.
The National Gallery, Alexandros Soutsos in the village of Korakiana: this is a branch of the National Gallery of Greece. It hosts works of the most important Greek artists and is a comprehensive, fascinating tour of the art of Greece. You will need transport to get there.
Beauty & Wellness.
A rainy day is ideal for relaxation.
We suggest you experience it to the fullest at the luxurious Aurelia Spa by choosing body or facial massage and surrendering your senses to the experienced hands of trained beauticians.
Another more affordable option is the Golden Salon in the modern town where you can get manicures, pedicures, massages and rejuvenating facials.
Keep your umbrella handy, wear safe shoes, and browse the interesting shops of the Old and Modern Town. Find clothes, shoes, cosmetics, objects, jewelry, linens, and anything else you want to acquire!
We recommend some shops you will love:
Antikeri in Town Hall Square: it is a small shop with objects, jewelry, and accessories of sophisticated aesthetics chosen with persistence and taste by the Italian owner.
The Alley Project: the shop where everything is unique, from the mugs to the clothes and that will remind you of Corfu every moment. It is located on Agios Vasileiou Street in the heart of the city.
NOMI: Buy from Nomi packaged pure products of the Greek land and take them with you to taste Greece all year round from your homeland.
Eat souvlaki at Pane e Souvlaki in Town Hall Square, Greek casserole dishes at Chrysomallis in the most central street of the Old Town, gourmet Mediterranean cuisine at Pomo D’ Oro, authentic Italian cuisine at Tavola Calda.
If you prefer a souvlaki on the hand, go for Pikantiko in the Piazza area.
The Old Town offers many places for fascinating cocktails and good music. We recommend Liston Gastrotheque, Vittori and Bristol.
