Full description
This tour gets you closer to authentic traditions of Corfu by allowing you to visit some of the oldest commercial stores in the old and the new parts of Corfu Town. Some of these stores were established decades ago and still remain unchanged, reminding those visiting of bygone eras. Some others have changed with the times; yet still sell their signature products which are popular with locals and travelers alike. When it comes to food, you will be surprised to find so many Venetian influences in sweet and savory dishes, which keep their Italian names too. Your passionate tour guide will show you around the local market, where there are stores that have stood the test of time, with many of them being one-of-a-kind. From well-known pastry and coffee grinding shops, cafés and milk shops, to tavernas and cellars with local wine. You will also spot butcher shops with locally-made charcuterie, stores with traditional products such as kumquat, Corfu olive oil and honey, ceramic artworks, and olive wood utensils.

    A great tour of the traditional shops of Corfu. Our tour guide was a young, open-minded and friendly woman. She had a lot of historical background knowledge and answered many questions individually.
