The route will drive us directly to the historic town of Corfu (UNESCO World Heritage Monument), as we begin near the New Fortress (or alternatively from “GEO bicycling and more” premises in Dassia). The route passes from the back side of the New Fortress, through the coastal boulevard of Garitsa and Paleopolis and up to the two most famous landmarks of Corfu: Vlacherna Monastery and the little green islet of “Pontikonisi” (Mouse-Island). Then it continues passing by the former royal estate and gardens of “Mon Repos”, towards the historic Old Town, with a short visit to the famous Spianada Square, the elegant Liston building complex and the Old Palace. After a walk in the cobblestone alleys and a coffee break, the route descends slowly through the St. Georges arch, via the romantic seafront lane of “Mouragia” and up to the Jewish Quarter.
