Corfu Easter 2017

Easter 2017

Easter for the Orthodox church this year is a little early, on April 16th, so the Sunday of Thomas is on April 9th and the other holidays are on Friday 14th and the second day of Easter on the 17th, the other related to Easter celebrations will continue until the Sunday after Easter on April 23.

Roughly events almost every year have become traditions followed almost the same order.
Top are those of the falls of large pots from the windows of buildings around Liston in the morning of Holy Saturday during the so-called first resurrection.
This Custom hapens around the island but has a special beauty in the Esplanade Square and the point of Pentofanaro next to Liston, due to the environment and the presence of big crowd.
Also the ceremony of Resurrection at Sunday midnight to Sunday, every year in the Upper Square.

See these and many other events of Holy Week with the details here.

We are confident that in the next video his imagination will help and have amazing results.

Pizza house Kavouras, Simply the best pizza in Corfu

The Pizzeria Kavouras is located on the main street of Benitses, across the north side of the harbor and right next to the pharmacy in Benitses.

It is a restaurant for pizza lovers and is specialized in Italian pizza type, the menu is dominated by many kinds of pizza and special pastas.

The dough is opened in front of the customer, the toppings are placed and pizza is baked in a wood oven situated between the tables.
Kavouras knows what to put in the dough, what and how much toppings will use, how warm the oven should be and how to cook.

The result, as all customers say is the best pizza in Corfu.

We have tried pizza in many parts of the world made by the best Italian Pizza Makers and we think that this expression is injustice for this pizza, it is not just the best in Corfu but the best of all we tried.

If you love pizza, Kavouras is the best place to go! Great toppings, fantasticly cooked, just wonderful! Not to forget the friendly environment and super low prices.. a definite MUST!

The restaurant is open during the summer season, usually from May to October and is always full.
Opening hours 7:00pm until late.
