Another beautiful small street in Corfu.

The city of Corfu is located on a wide part of the peninsula, whose ending in the Venetian citadel was cut off from him by an artificial moat created in a natural ravine, with a sea moat at the bottom, which now serves as a marina and is called Contrafossa. The old city, which grew within the fortifications, where every meter of land was valuable, is a maze of narrow streets lined with cobbles, sometimes winding, but colorful and clean. These streets are known as kantoúnia, and older ones sometimes follow gentle inequalities of the earth; while many of them are too narrow for vehicular traffic. The promenade rises over the sea towards the bay of Garitsa, along with the promenade between the city and the citadel known as the Spianada with the arcades of Liston (it) on its west side, where restaurants and bistros abound (from Wikipedia)
