hi, Katakolon. Nice little port, Short walk in to the town, Most of the shop's and bars are on the right as you make you're way along, But if you turn LEFT as you leave the Harbour, There is a really nice little Beach with a small bar, Its great for swimming and cold beer. If after having a swim , You can walk thru the town and at the far end you will find a little Noddy train? You no what I mean. It will take you on a tour taking in a wine place plus some other stops, Ending up at a Great hotel . It has its own beach, Great Bar, COLD BEER, You can stay there as long as you like , Then catch the last NODDY back to the ship. It's only a few Euro's each
That's what we did and had a great day.


Thank you for sharing!

Not such a long time then sadly, ok the New Fort overlooks the port and is about a 15 minute walk and well worth the entry fee, the Old Fort is on the other side of Corfu town but more expensive and less to see, the Liston near the Old Fort is an area of cafes and bars where the Corfiots go to meet, the Town itself has a number of shops, Churches, cafes and Museums. In the Old harbour a walk along the road from the main port you will find a trip boat that has glass sides and goes out to the nearby island of Vidos where they do a show with Sea Lions.

When you get to the port building there will be Taxis waiting nearby, you could hire one and ask them to take you for a tour or the East coast going North, or ask to go to Paleokastritsa and Bella Vista if you like sightseeing.

There is also the Achillion palace where one of the James Bond films was made which is South of Corfu Town.

A few words that should help with a taxi driver is Yassou, Kalispera, Tikanis or Hello, Good Afternoon, How are you. The response should be Kala or Poli Kala, Good or Very Good.


Thank you so much for the great tips and the language translations! This should come in very handy for sure.

We are calling at Brindisi, Katakolon, Piraeus, Santorini, Corfu and Kotor during our cruise in August. I would appreciate any advice about what we can do when we reach these ports as we don't want to pay the cruise prices! We are travelling with a 12 and 14 year old and would rather do it off our own backs but at the same time, don't want to miss anything and regret what we haven't done. Thank you in advance!



How was your cruise? Did you get to do a lot of sightseeing tours. We are going next year in April if all goes well.
