Benitses blue bus (No 6)

Most people visiting Corfu will use their local bus at some stage, It is part of the holiday, as local people mix with the visitors.
Benitses blue bus (No. 6) is a very good service, linking the resorts of Benitses, Kaiser’s Bridge, and Perama with Corfu Town.

It begins its journey at the southern boundary of Benitses, outside Bellos Beach Hotel, and then picks up people, and it is usually standing room only by the time it reaches the school, at the northern entrance of the village.

The bus stop is only on one side of the road, but buses coming in the other direction stop exactly opposite.

Tickets can be purchased on the bus but the fare is 50 cents higher than if the ticket is bought in advance from the kiosk or supermarket.

It is quite a scenic route as it goes through the ruins of the Kaiser’s Bridge- built to enable the kaiser to walk from his yacht, moored at the jetty, into the grounds of the Achilleon Palace.

The bridge was blown up during World War 2 to enable the German tanks to pass through.

A little further on the bus stops at the Perama end of the causeway to Vlacherna, where you can get a boat across to Mouse Island (Ponticonissi), Corfu’s most photographed view.

Some people get off the bus here, walk over the causeway and then get another bus (No. 2) from Kanoni into Corfu Town.

The coffee bars at Kanoni are a ‘Mecca’ for ‘plane spotters as you can watch them taking off and landing every few minutes.

If you stay on the bus until the end of the route, in Corfu Town, you are set down in the business area.

However, walk straight ahead down the street ignoring all turnings off and you will arrive in the main square facing the Old Fortress, in about 10 minutes.
From here you can explore the old town.

Remember where you got off the bus however, as this is where you will board it for your return trip!
