The Ionian Islands, Greece
The Ionian islands lie off Greece’s western coast in a line from Zakynthos in the south to Corfu in the north. Part of the latter is closer to Albania than to the mainland. The Islands are part of Greece and lie off the country’s west coast, in the Ionian Sea. The northernmost island, Corfu, has an old town with Renaissance, baroque and classical architecture. Corfu also features the 19th-century Liston, a promenade on the central square, with arcades and cafes.
