Campiello in Corfu: Part of a UNESCO-protected World Heritage Site, the Campiello is Corfu Town’s most medieval-like part due to its picturesque alleyways, intricate staircases, and small-sized squares! Enjoy a lengthy stroll through its streets (called kandounia) and spot an array of yellow and peach-painted houses and the characteristic laundry ropes that connect neighboring balconies together!
Founded during the Angevin rule of the 13th and 14th centuries, the Campiello was at first a place of residence for people of Jewish descent, while it still boasts a similar atmosphere amongst its streets! During the next few centuries, the tall, multi-floored, Venetian-era buildings and apartments were built in order to house upper-class members of Corfu Town, even though the WWII bombardment of 1943 did crucial damage to a plethora of these homes.
While walking through the Campiello, you will also notice a handful of beautiful well designs in the middle of the district’s squares! On top of that, the area is now a fully-fledged tourist market with many street-side shops offering high-end jewelry, bags, shoes, and other fashion items!
