The main city, Corfu, is one of the most beautiful in Greece as it has preserved its Venetian character and charm. Built between two fortresses, visitors will be able to admire the delightful Italian and French buildings, narrow streets, Byzantine churches and historical buildings. At the one end of the city is the old Venetian fortress which has been cut off from the main land by a 25m wide moat. West of this fortress one finds the striking Spianada square and several museums such as the Archaeological Museum and the Museum of Asian Art which is housed in the Palace of the English Lord High Commissioner. Additionally, 10km from the city is the beautiful Achillio Palace which was originally the palace of Elisabeth, also known as Sissy, the empress of Austria. Today it is operated as a very fashionable casino.
