    Corfu was a Venetian overseas possession from the mid-14th century until the late 18th century. The constitution in Corfu during the Venetian occupation was exclusive, handing all political power to the nobility. Corfu’s inhabitants were subdivided into 3 different classes: Nobles, Civilians and People/Peasants.

    During this tour you will travel back to the time when Corfu was occupied by the Venetians. Your expert guide will help you discover all the influences the island still has since that time. You will hear how the people lived in the town; about what rights they had; about the nobles; about the refugees that came to Corfu during the Ottoman invasions; and about the Golden Book.
