Crete

Overview

Crete is an extraordinary curtain of magnificent beaches, historic riches, and sceneries surrounding lively cities and dreamlike villages, where natives share their customs, marvellous food and lavish soul.

Crete’s pure charm is matched only by the abundance of its past. The island is the native home of the first advanced group on European territory, the Minoans, who governed some 4000 years ago, and you’ll locate vivid remnants all around, plus the popular Palace of Knossos. At the intersection of three mainlands, Crete has been desired and inhabited by back-to-back raiders. The past injects Hania and Rethymno, where maze-like lanes – put out by the Venetians – are dominated over by ferocious castles, and where attractively repaired Renaissance manors stroke rafters with mosques and Turkish bathhouses. The Byzantine impact is placed in impressively colored shrines, chapels and abbeys.

There’s something clearly artistic in the way the Cretan scenery unfurls, from the sun-soaked beaches in the north to the rough canyons overflowing out at the bay-sculpted and cliff-hemmed southern show. Among those, valleys hold unpredictable villages, and round-shouldered peaks are the prelude to frequently snow-covered summits. Take it all in on a driving excursion, hike across Europe’s lengthiest ravine, trek to the cave where Zeus was born or cycle amid orchards on the Lasithi Highlands. Keep time to place your footprints on a sandy beach, and kayak, snorkel or boat, in the transparent waters.
