ABOUT CRETE

Greece is known for many things including its many fascinating islands. Each island has its own unique character  but of all the Greek islands none attracts more praise from tourists and travelers than the beautiful island of Crete.

Crete is the largest of Greece’s many islands, and it offers an incredible range of attractions that keep visitors  coming back again and again. The natural beauty of the island attracts travellers from far and wide. With its  rugged sea gorges, snow-capped mountains, fertile plains and excellent beaches, no visitor can fail to be  impressed by the natural beauty of Crete.

The busy capital of Crete, Heraklion, has evolved into a developed and dynamic city with all the facilities and  conveniences that you’d expect to find in any modern city. The old city of Chania, to the west, has been likened to  a ‘Little Venice’, with its Venetian Harbour.

Both Heraklion and Chania, Crete’s second largest city, have international and domestic airports that make it  easy to get to the island from Athens on the mainland and also from other European cities including London,  where Ryanair and Easyjet operate direct summer services between the UK and Crete.

 

Crete could be characterized as a ‘miniature of Greece’, since it reflects all sides of this charming Mediterranean country. Blessed with divine beauties and rich cultural heritage, Crete offers to its visitors an authentic Greek Experience and memories that will last for a lifetime.

The captivating nature of the island – exotic gold sanded beaches with crystal clear waters, unexplored caves, blooming forests, fertile valleys, imposing gorges, magnificent lakes, breathtaking canyons and even imposing snow-covered mountains – are ideally combined with ancient archaeological treasures, myths and legends unfolding before your eyes. To top it off, this once in a lifetime experience also includes exceptional gastronomy that will indulge your senses and tickle your taste buds.The traditional Cretan cuisine is renowned internationally for its unique ingredients and flavors.
