What to do in Corfu when it rains?

Corfu has a lot of activities to offer even if it’s raining outside. Here are some ideas:

Visit the Corfu Archaeological Museum or the Museum of Asian Art

Corfu Archaeological Museum

It was founded in 1962 and is housed in the Palace of St. Michael and St. George, a neoclassical building that was constructed in the early 19th century. The museum’s collection contains artifacts from various periods of Corfu’s history, including the Prehistoric, Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine periods.

Corfu Museum of Asain Art

It was founded in 1928 by the Greek diplomat Gregorios Manos, who was stationed in Asia for many years and developed a passion for Asian art and culture. The museum is housed in the Palace of St. Michael and St. George, a neoclassical building that was constructed in the early 19th century and also houses the Corfu Archaeological Museum.

The museum’s collection contains over 15,000 artifacts from various countries in Asia, including China, Japan, India, and Southeast Asia. The exhibits cover a wide range of artistic styles and mediums, including sculpture, painting, textiles, ceramics, and metalwork. Some of the most notable exhibits in the museum include a 2nd-century BCE Indian lion capital, a 13th-century Japanese Zen painting, and a collection of Chinese pottery from the Tang and Song dynasties.

Enjoy a coffee

Greeks will go for a coffee and sit there for hours. Be like a Greek on a rainy day! There are many place inside or under umbrellas where the rain won’t get you.  Liston, in Corfu Town is probably the most popular. Also, Dolce Cafe, in Lakones.  A view from high up of one of the most beautiful places in Corfu, Paleokastritsa.
