The site is interesting but given its age not much remains .However to visit the original city of Corfu is always worthwhile Easily reached by bus .

Nice ruins but not always opened. Next to Mon Repos and on the way to Kanoni. You can go by bus to Kanoni, go back (downhill) by foot and stop at the site.

This is an archeological site which, like many sites in Greece, is waiting on funding to continue the investigation. The Roman remains located on the eastern side of the street include the remnants of a bath. The church on the western side of the street...More

This site is fascinating, it is on the main road opposite the gates of Mon Repos which you should visit. There is an excellent museum there and also some archaeological sites including a 6th Century BC Doric Temple. Well worth a visit. The gardens are...More
