International Festival of Corfu' was founded in June 2008 with the objective of planning, organising and managing the cultural events in the Region of Corfu that constitute the "International Corfu Festival". The aim is to demonstrate the richness of the local musical heritage but also to include music of a contemporary nature in a festival production entitled "Ionian Concerts".
Dark green cypress trees blend with shining orange and lemon grooves blossoming in the fresh air to give Corfu that Mediterranean charm. Once, the island was a holiday destination for European Emperors and royalty and is known as the "Princess of the Ionian Sea". The scenery of Corfu reminds that of Tuscany! Corfu has an immense cultural heritage, exceptionally interesting tourist attractions, matchless sandy beaches of unequalled beauty and extraordinary gastronomic offerings. The special architecture of the old town and the pronounced Venetian elements are impressed in the buildings adorning the city of Corfu; it is a labyrinth of narrow streets paved with cobblestones, sometimes tortuous but colourful and clean. In 2007, Corfu city's old town was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Corfu's nature, sea and history have made sure so that you today, no matter when you come, or how long you will stay, or your style, you will certainly find original and interesting situations to exercise and to have fun. In a place with a tradition in tourism of at least 130 years, with Greek education and the influence of “nobility” from England, France and, surely, Venice, in a place which is used to welcoming the international jet-set for several decades now, the possibilities for sports and amusement are certainly impressive.
