Green Tour

In a period where the efforts for creating a culture of environmental responsibility are higher and higher, Corfu’s suggestion is an alternative way of touring.

Visit Corfu town by bicycle. Small groups of maximum 10 persons have the chance to visit the historic city (a world heritage monument of UNESCO) on two wheels and drift in the small graphic alleys (kantounia) of the old town.

Within approximately 3 hours and in a distance of about 10 kilometers the riders are having a guiding to the most important monuments of Corfu town. An escort is proving information about the Old and New Fortress of the 16th century, as well as the Paleopolis and Mon Repos Palace built in the 19th century. A camera and a swim-suit are necessary, since the participants are having many stops for photo shooting and a stop for refreshments and swim.

In this “Green” effort of promoting Corfu town and its highlights anybody can attend since the level of difficulty is easy. The ecological tour is organized twice (either in the morning or in the afternoon) daily by the “Cycling Stories”.
