When we think of Greece, the very first things that come to mind are gods, goddesses, ancient architecture, and Parthenon. Sometimes, we also automatically think about captivating cities and settlements surrounded by water that look like they came straight out of mythos. Situated off of the northwest coast of Greece, and defined by its craggy mountainous areas and a shoreline studded with resorts of all sizes, the island of Corfu is a definite go-to destination. Other European influences are very evident in this island as it spent years under French, British, and Venetian rule before it was finally reunited with the country of Greece in 1864, making it a holiday spot with aesthetic attractions and sceneries.
