Shopping by the Corfu port is a favorite among travelers. Cobblestone streets enhance the splendor of the old township of Corfu with its maze-like streets, which are jam-packed with pedestrians in search for island treasures. You can travel on foot into this walled town in only 10 to 15 minutes. Cruisers say they enjoy entering into the town through the archway and enjoy browsing the quaint shops that line the twisted streets. Reviews also say the leather goods are well made and fairly inexpensive. Visit shops such as Aleka's Lace House, Corfu Leather or the Continental Market. Travelers love the friendly people and hassle-free shops.
If you want to shop outside the old city, you can find public buses, taxis and rental cars available at the cruise ship pier. Although the hours vary from shop to shop, most stores stay open during the time cruise ships are docked. There are a number of shops that will close their doors during the afternoon hours for a “siesta,” or midday nap.
