“What better time to travel than when you are in college.” Imagine going to class on an island surrounded by mountains and Venetian fortresses. If you think that sounds too good to be true, it’s not. It's true and it's called Corfu.
"As an occasional travelling journalist who has visited around 90 per cent of the Greek islands, I am asked 'what is the best Greek island?'," Paul Hellander, travel writer, interpreter and translator.
Corfu will participate in the World Travel Market with the other islands of the Region of Ionian Islands. A delegation from Corfu, consisting of professionals from the tourism sector will participate in this event highlighting the advantages of Corfu as an idyllic Mediterranean destination, which recently has received worldwide awareness due to the success of the TV series "The Durrells in Corfu".
