About this wheelchair accessible Kanoni tour

Your Wheelchair Accessible Kanoni tour starts from the cruise port where you meet your English-speaking licensed guide. You find her by the sign she is holding with your name on it.

Together you drive to Kanoni, following a winding seaside road, passing traditional villages on the west coast of Corfu. From Kanoni you admire the famous view of Mouse Island (‘Pontikonisi’). According to the legend, Mouse Island was formed by the ship that took Odysseus back to Ithaca, which is his home port. That is where Poseidon, the God of the sea, turned him to stone. He was angry at being defied by the Phaeacians. Under the Hill of Kanoni is the Convent of Vlachernas. From here you have the possibility of taking the boat to the Mouse Island* itself. Read below about the accessibility of this boat.

Kanoni

Kanoni is a bathing place, located in Central Corfu at 5 kilometers from Corfu town. It is one of the most beautiful areas of Corfu town and is situated on the outskirts of the modern city, on the southern peninsula, where the archaeological area of ​​Palaiopoli is situated. Kanoni, which means “battery”, is named after a battery gun that was installed by the French in 1798. On the square, you find a remaining cannon, as a reminder of the past.

Mouse Island

From the square you have a beautiful view over Pontikonissi (mouse island), here you go with a boat that is at Vlacherna, Vlacherna (monastery) and the airport of Corfu. Just below Kanoni is the lagoon of the Halikiopoulos lagoon. The small Vlacherna chapel, with a tiled roof, is connected to the land by a narrow strip of cement. A little further is the green, characteristic island of Pontikonissi.

Pure magic

What makes Kanoni so unique is that it is located above the runway of the national airport of Corfu. This way, you have the opportunity to spot planes that pass so close that you feel as if you can touch them! The sunset is genuinely fantastic here. If you are lucky enough to see the sunset at the same time that the moon rises, you experience pure magic that lets you enjoy Corfu in all its glory! The perfect way of ending your Kanoni tour

Tip: the Egret is a very endangered species. The bird often hibernates in the Halikiopoulos laguna. Who knows, you might discover him!

*Note: Mouse Island can only be accessed by small boats for environmental reasons. These boats are not accessible.
