Things to do and see in the area of Perivoli, Corfu

A visit to the neighboring town of Lefkimmi

Lefkimmi is the second-largest settlement of Corfu, located 40km south of Corfu Town. Lying at the southern tip of the island, it is the center of activities for this area. Modern-day Lefkimmi has essentially resulted from the unification of five villages (Riglades, Anaplades, Agioi Theodoroi, Melikia, and Potami) and consists of three neighborhoods: Ano (Upper) Lefkimmi, Lefkimmi (or Potami), and Melikia.

Lefkimmi is set in a fertile plain full of olive trees and vineyards. To a large extent, it has remained untouched by mass tourism, so it retains its traditional identity and allure. It gives a feeling of a past era, and it is not uncommon to see women balancing pots on their heads and men carrying goods on their donkeys in the streets.

A stroll through the narrow paved streets of Lefkimmi will amaze you with the old merchants’ mansions and cottages, the Venetian-style buildings, the small squares, and the elaborate churches all over town. Lefkimmi is also called Potami (river), as a river that flows into the nearby Bouka beach runs through it. The paved piers are lined with bakeries, restaurants, tavernas, and coffee shops. The cuisine served here is purely traditional, so you can rest assured you will be treated with a genuine Corfiot welcome. The wooden boats of local fishermen moored along the banks create a very picturesque sight.
