I love the drive up to the summit, and having a coffee overlooking the landscape below is amazing. The small church is a gem. Pick wild sage, it smells so so so good!

Journey to the top of Corfu and be amazed by the views, across the island and to the mainland. Wander around the little monastery set in the shadow of masts and antennas. Enjoy a refreshment while you steady yourself for the journey back down.

A very scary, white knuckle drive! I am not going to give a poor review although personally I did not enjoy it. If you are okay with heights you will be fine otherwise avoid. Very cold, wet and windy on the day we visited so...More

The views from the top are amazing and really put the island into perspective. The small monastery is really beautiful and worth going in to see. There is the obligatory shop and cafe for refreshments too.

the way to the top is a typical narrow street with a lot of turns. But the view is worth it. Not easy to park your car. There's a small bar so you can drink something

you get to the top of the mountain through a twisty road, but once you get there man oh man, it is totally worth it. The view is one of a kind. Yes, maybe the nice view is disturbed a little by all the antennas,...More

Yes the main car route up the mountain continues to the north of the island but you won't get to the top of the mountain just in the car. I didn't hire a car so couldn't comment on the route on the north side of the mountain... More
