Corfu – an island in need of a good map
Discovery Walking Guides cartographic survey team has just returned from Corfu, and boy, does Corfu need a good map.
It’s a tricky island for visitors wanting to travel around by hire car or bike, because road signage is confusing (or non-existent) and unusually, roads have not been allocated road numbers.
A few stretches of tarmac do have kilometre markers though this information is patchy to say the least. We also discovered that car systems such as TomTom and similar don’t work here.
So, it tuned out to be an interesting and most productive visit. The new Corfu Tour & Trail Super-Durable Map design work will shortly be under way, with a scheduled publication date around December 2016.
With a good, reliable and newly researched map, visitors can confidently go beyond the usual tourist spots and discover the heart of this beautiful island.
Some ‘main roads’ through Corfu’s mountain villages are a bit of a squeeze!
Corfu’s flora and fauna are beautiful.
