A silk road route to discovering Corfu island.

The Silk Road that connected the East and West throughout the centuries both influenced and enriched the culture, politics and religion of this region from the 2nd century BCE to the 18th century. While Silk Road primarily refers to the land, there were also sea routes connecting East Asia and Southeast Asia with South Asia, Persia, the Arabian Peninsula, East Africa, Southern Europe and the Greek islands of Santorini and Corfu.

The Silk Road trade opened long-distance political and economic relations between the civilizations. Though silk was the major trade item exported from China, the Silk Road was a route for cultural trade among the civilizations along its network.

Taking inspiration from the lucrative years of trading silk, we are bringing to you a number of exclusive Corfu experiences exploring and identifying western and eastern influences, hoping that they will bring a special delight to your unique Angsana Corfu experience of local culture.

Contact our Concierge to arrange exploring one of our unique Angsana Corfu Silk roads.
