Crete, is the biggest island of Greece, located in the South, between the Aegean and the Cretan Sea. It is a mosaic of different landscapes, sandy beaches, rocky bays, traditional villages and vibrant cities, white mountaintops and a crystal blue sea!
The people of Crete are famous for their open heart, generosity and hospitality. The will never allow a visitor to leave their place without treating him raki, the traditional drink, and anything they have available in their houses.
Crete is a paradise of tastes, pure olive oil, herbs, fresh fruit, honey, delicious cheese and dairy products, all made here in this blessed island.
And of course a rich history dating back to the Minoan Civilisation, numerous archeologiacal sites and museums.
Not to miss – The palace of King Minos in Knossos, the sandy hills of Ag. Pavlos, the island of Chryssi, the Palm tree forest in Preveli, the Arkadi Monastery, the Old town of Chania and the Venetian Harbour of Rethymno. If you are brave enough you can reach the mountaintop of Psiloritis ( 2.400m) and enjoy a 360 view of the island.
