We walked up to the New Fortress to find it closed (I've attached a photo of the notice that's on the gate. This was not a problem for us as we love just strolling around the old town.

We walked all the way to the top and there isn’t anything to do up there and you can’t go Inside the castle but the view is stunning so it’s just good to take some pictures of Corfu town :)

My wife and I had read much conflicting information on the opening hours of this fortress. We got there about 0955 on a Saturday and waited until 1010 but it did not open. At the entrance, there were notices in English saying it opened at...More

Nothing to see here. A few nice views at the top but apart from that a waste of time. Go to the old fortress instead.

Interesting and better maintained than the old fort and provided some excellent views of the town and sea

Came here expecting to pay but admission was free between 9am and 2pm. Great views of Corfu Town, especially on a nice day. Not that many people inside, which was good.

There is nothing to see within the fortress however we'll worth the visit for the stunning view across the water to Albania. Free admission.

We went to Corfu Old Town, and since we were there and the fortfress was near, we decided to go see it. Walking into it, was an after thought, but we decided that we would. There was no fee to enter. Each part you climed...More

It looks nice and all but it pales in comparison to the old fort. Not sure whether I would go there again. The 'boulevard' in the old port here was not exciting and smelled bad.

A nice fortress with free entrance. On the top you have a panoramic view of the old town. It is big and very clean. Just a bit slippery in some corners :(

Yes, we followed the route from the large fountain on the seafront by the old port. It's actually very easy. The only awkward bit is that you don't pay till you get to the top so you feel like you shouldn't be there at... More
