    Kassiópi is a beautiful little harbor town in the north-east of Corfu.The bay at the Kassiópi is a natural harbor, where sailboats and motor yachts are today.
    Very nice to take a break here in one of the small cafes.
    In ancient times Kassiópi was an important port. Ships from Italy reached protected waters again after crossing the open sea, and ships on the way there were able to wait for favorable weather in Kassiópis. Thus, for example, Cicero or Emperor Nero for a few days in the city.
    From the large fortress on the Bateria Peninsula from the Byzantine period, only the outer walls and a restored gate tower are preserved. Under the Venetians, the fortress was significantly expanded and took almost the entire peninsula. Of the formerly 17 towers, only the foundations are left.
    The interior of the castle is a single olive grove, which is partly managed and maintained, sometimes more like a jungle.
    Very idyllic up there along the walls to turn a round, as well as below the fortress by the sea to circle the peninsula.
