Muslims visiting the Museum of Asian art of Corfu will not be able to find any prayer facilities at the attraction, nor will they be able to locate any mosques or Islamic Centres in the city of Corfu. They will therefore have to find a secluded place outdoors to offer their prayers, or if unable to, they will have to return to their hotel rooms at prayer times.
The Museum of Asian art of Corfu does not house a café. Visitors will however be able to find a number of fantastic cafés and restaurants in the surrounding area. While these restaurants will not be Halal certified, Muslim tourists are sure to find some that serve suitable seafood and vegetarian dishes.
