Escorted Rail Tours to Corfu
A verdant Ionian island
Corfu (Kerkira in Greek) is the second-largest of the Ionian Islands, and with its elegant hills, impressive cliffs and idyllic white sand beaches, it is one of Europe's most popular destinations.
According to legend, Corfu was first inhabited from the times of Greek mythology. Apparently Poseidon fell in love with the beautiful nymph Korkyra, and abducted her. Poseidon brought Korkyra to the then-unnamed island and, overcome by his love for her, gave the island her name.
