Corfu remained under the Venetians rule until 1797. In that year, Napoleon occupied Venice and the island was taken over by the French for the short period of one year. In 1799 the Ottomans finally occupied Corfu and following an agreement between Turkey and Russia the island was divided into sectors. This regime was short lived because, in 1815, the area was occupied by the British who maintained control of the island until 1864, when they finally withdrew and handed it over to Greece. Today, Corfiots celebrate May 21 as the anniversary of their freedom from the British by organizing church prayers, sport events and school parades. So, in 1864, Corfu joined Greece. Imagine this kind sunset on this picture.
