Hertz Rent a car Corfu
Corfu is the famous island of Feakes, it’s located on the northern part of the Ionian Sea and it has been heavily influenced by the Western Civilization. It’s also one of the most popular and beautiful summer holiday destinations for Greeks and foreign visitors. By exploring its natural beauty, you will see that the Venetians, the English and the French left their best cultural marks on the island. In every little corner, everything looks so perfectly blended with the aura of this Ionian jewel.
We start our tour from Spiniada Square; a French remnant of history. The distinctive architecture and aesthetics has turned this place into the ultimate vibrant and central spot of this island. The biggest square in the Balkans is situated between the old and the new fortress and it’s one of the most widely known spots of the island, without its size affecting its aesthetics and warmth.
Hertz, the biggest car rental agency in Greece, operates 3 offices in Corfu. One is located in the city of Corfu, one at the airport and the last one in Aharavi, on the northern part of the island. The unique lovely beaches and the spectacular monuments and attractions on the island make the use of a car essential.
The covered passage of Liston, in Georgiou A’ Avenue, is the most characteristic image of Corfu and the mostly photographed one. The arched passage with the cafes and the stores are the ideal place for a stroll in the center of the town. We are sure that at some point you will wonder how your life would be if you were actually living there. The patron saint of the island is Agios Spyridonas and the homonymous church is definitely impressive. It might not be heavily decorated, compared to other Byzantine churches, but it has the elegance of the Italian renaissance.
The island’s landmark is Pontikonisi. You should definitely see the church of Virgin Mary of Vlaherna, a small chapel connected by a small land strip with the rest of the island, which starts from Kanoni. The island got its name from its shape. According to one of the many myths, this islet was created from Poseidon’s wrath. What’s for sure is that it has a distinctive natural touch that you will probably never forget.
The staff of Hertz will be happy to provide you with useful information and tips on the beaches and the attractions of the island, as well as of the routes you shouldn’t miss. For your car rental needs in Corfu, trust Hertz!
