Corfu refers to both the island and to its main town. Villages of whitewashed houses confetti the sunny isle, two to 15 miles off the Albanian coast. Kerkyra, as it is called in Greek, is rich in Byzantine churches, Venetian fortresses and vibrant nightlife, just some of the reasons it remains the most popular Ionian island. The cosmopolitan town has a population of 37,000, and a wealth of Greek, French and British influences in its maze of narrow, cobbled streets and sophisticated New Town.
