Learn how locals adapted to Venetian rule by observing how their customs changed, so you can get a feel for what life was like for them. Your guide will reveal all the influences the island still bears today so you’ll get exclusive insight into how much the locals’ lives have changed since the Venetian occupation.

You will also learn about how the people lived in the town, what rights they had, and all about the nobles, the refugees who came to Corfu during the Ottoman invasions, and the Golden Book.
