    Traffic

    Corfu receives more traffic during the summer holidays period and this is when visitors driving in there should be very careful on the road. Here are some key points to pay attention to:

    • The roads in there are narrow and winding, therefore, economy or compact vehicles are recommended for car hire in Corfu.
    • Speaking on the phone while driving is forbidden.
    • The white lines on the roads are often bleached out by the sun.

    Parking

    Parking possibilities in the Old Town part of Corfu are quite limited as street parking bays are usually full. You can try to park your car hire in the public car park near the new port. The situation is different, if you go for a ride on Corfu Island; this is the best way to see the its nature and visit the most remote places. You can park your vehicle basically wherever the street lines do not forbid it.

    Geographic Information

    Corfu lies in the Ionian Sea close to the shores of Southern Albania and the northern part of Greece mainland. After Kefalonia, Corfu is the second biggest Ionian Island. Since 1960, when the island became more and more popular tourist destination, local sea resorts have given way to hotels designed for a larger number of tourists. However, most of the mountain terrain, covered with woods or olive grooves, has remained unchanged. The island highest peak is Pantokrator at 906m (2,972 ft), from which on a sunny clear day it is possible to see Italy. The architecture on the island is a reminiscence of Corfu history, besides the remains of ancient Greek and Rome, there are also palaces of European aristocracy as Habsburg or Di Savoia.

    There's a higher precipitation rate on Corfu than in the rest of Greece, with December being the most affected month. Summer is very warm with average temperatures of 32 Celsius degrees.
