The Kanóni peninsular, despite the many buildings, contains a great deal of charming secenry and of course here you can see with your own eyes the famous picture-postcard view of Ponikonissi (Mouse Island) and Vlacherna.

We visited Kanóni three times. The first time we drove there by car and we only visited the square at the tourist pavillion. We enjoyed a nice cold frapé and the breathtaking view. The second time we hiked our way around and explored the entire area. Up the road towards Kanóni, along a side road sign-posted 'Stratia', we found the ruins of the Temple of Artemis where the famous Gorgon pediment was found. From that point on we went looking for the Convent of Ayios Theodoros and a suriving section of the wall of ancient Corcyra, dating back to the 5the century BC. Maybe a bit weird, but we could not find it an it was already getting a bit dark, so we decided to get back to our apartement. Of course we were determined to find it during our stay at Corfu, but we must admit that we didn't have the time for it as we explored other parts of the island instead. Maybe some other time?

Address: Area of Kanóni.
Directions: Situated at the south side of the island. It is a 5 km drive from the capital of Corfu, Corfu Town.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
