Estimated driving time: 35 min

Description

Spianada square is said to be the largest square in the Balkans. It is located between the town and the Old Fort.

In the west side is Liston, an impressive building complex. It was built under the French rule, in imitation of the Parisian Rue de Rivoli. According to tradition only the gentries who were registered in the list of nobles had the right to walk here. Today it hosts elegant cafes beneath its colonnade. There is a cricket pitch opposite the Liston, which is said to be the most atmospheric pitch in Europe.

The northern side is dominated by the Palace of St.Michael and St.George,one of the finest examples of Regency Style outside Britain.

East of Spianada a bridge above the Venetian ditch leads to the Old Fortress.

On the south end you may find various green spaces, a Roman-influenced rotunda, a monument commemorating the union of the Ionian Islands with Greece and a gorgeous music pavilion, where concerts are often performed during the summer months.
