The 3rd port on our Holland America cruise was Corfu, Greece.

First, of course, we had to get some food, the picture below is the government building in the center of the city we passed on the way to the restaurant. dsc03328

Our lunch in Corfu was sooooo good!! Greek salad and meat kabob.

Next, we went to the old fortress of Corfu this fortress was built to protect the city from battle in the early 15th century.

I love the ocean in Greece, so clean and beautiful.

This is one of the historic government buildings that surround the fortress.

One of the places for boats to pass through and dock, this is a part of the fortress’s marina.dsc03346

A beautiful building we passed by while walking around the city.

Before we got back to the cruise ship we stopped for some saganaki. By the way, it was delicious!! Throughout the day we did get some bad service and people that were not very nice.dsc03602

Overall I thought Corfu was lovely, and I am excited to go to other places in Greece.

I recommend to never set a schedule or a tour, just walk and see what you find!

Until the next adventure,

Bella
