Tennis legend Maria Sharapova has been enjoying a mid-autumn vacation on Corfu, Greece.
The Russian veteran player, who according to Forbes, has been the highest-paid female athlete in the world for eleven consecutive years and earned US$285 million, uploaded photos from her Corfu vacation on Instagram writing: “Catching the last summer rays in Greece.”
Corfu is among the most beautiful islands in Greece
Sharapova also cruised on a private yacht on distant coves of the beautiful Ionian island. Corfu is one of Greece’s most beautiful and storied islands.
Its breathtaking scenery, mountain ranges, and beaches are amongst the most mesmerizing in the country, and its blend of cultural histories and influences—French, English, Venetian, and, of course, Greek—will leave you with a unique understanding of how the culture of the Ionian Islands developed.
Corfu, unlike the rest of Greece, never fell under Ottoman oppression. The island has primarily become part of the Western rather than the Levantine world. Today, it is one of the most cosmopolitan Mediterranean destinations, weaving a powerful spell on its visitors.
