Corfu is the second largest Greek island in the Ionian Sea and considered to be the greenest. The municipality includes the island Corfu and the smaller islands of Ereikoussa, Mathraki and Othonoi.

So narrow! So dramatic! The canal was first completed in 1893, despite previous attempts from ancient times - the first plans date to 602 BC.
