Corfu - Archaeological Sites
The main Archaeological sites of the island are situated in the region of Palaiopoli, the region where the ancient city of Corfu was located, surrounded by the lagoon of Chalikiopoulos, Kanoni, Mon Repos and the bay of Garitsa. The Archaeological sites are a testimony of the trails left behind by a flourishing society from the 8th century B.C. until the 6th century A.D.
Ancient findings of the Roman era have been revealed in Benitses where the ruins of the Roman Bath are situated but also in Acharavi where the archaeological site is also open to the public in order to see the Roman Baths which were most probably a part of a Roman Villa.
