In order to find the way to Kanoni, you need to take the right turn when you pass in front of the airport runway, and turn right again on the third crossroad after the Corfu football stadium. Stop and get a coffee with the amazing view of pontikonissi, vlacherena church and the airplanes landing and taking off above your feet!
Our next destination is Corfu town (C), just few kilometers away. Have a look at the "sightseeing" menu for more information about it. Let's get some help on reaching and parking in town. You will drive by the airport's runway, take the right turn and then go all straight till you see the sea and turn left. You will see the Old fortress.

Next destination is Kassiopi (D) on the north east Corfu, a nice little port. On the way, you can pass by or stop in Kalami and Kouloura, two picturesque places just opposite Albania. We will next head western and Canal d' amour in Peroulades (E). This is the canal of love, another famous place of the evergreen island. More information you will find on the "sightseeing" part of the website.
Our next destination is very famous and you will find many signs for it. Paleokastritsa(F). Paleo is famous for the breathtaking views from the moutain of Lakones. Take the way to Lakones and follow the signs for "Angelokastro", a castle at the edge of the highest point on the north west coast of the island.
If you are not interested on the glass-bottom boats, the isolated beaches, the fish tavernas or the monastery, then you do not have to drive all the way down to Paleo (2,5 kms from Lakones crossroad). It has to be already afternoon and if you haven't seen the sunset alreadyf from Paleokastritsa, our next destination Pelekas (G) which is 19 kilometers away is a great chance.
