Show synopsis 4 car tours, over 50 long and short walks, 25 picnic suggestionsThis book focuses on walking, but it is not intended only for walkers. The car touring section will show you the best of the island, and the picnic suggestions make an excellent introduction to the countryside.There are walks for all ages and abilities on Corfu, from strolls to beaches to challenging day-long hikes - in the mountains or criss-crossing the plains. Many of the walks take in parts of the long-distance Corfu Trail.For centuries Corfu's magnetic beauty has attracted travellers,who have sung the praises of the peacock-hued bays, the hillsides drenched in silvery-green olive trees, and the emerald greenness of the countryside. And when you leave Corfu, these will be your impressions too. While time brings change, the pristine Corfu so beloved of Lear and the Durrell brothers can still be found - this book tells you where. It turns the island inside-out and helps you find a Corfu unknown to most tourists.
