Great Destinations – Crete

With white-walled houses, taverns and monasteries hiding among the olive trees and orange orchards, the largest Greek island offers high mountains, beautiful bays and enchanting cities.


If you love history, you can take a good look at the palace of Knossos near the capital. Matala is famous of its caves, the breathtaking Samaria gorge is one of Europe’s wildest places, while the beaches of Preveli and Vai await the lovers of the sea. The cities, like Agios Nikolaos, Rethimno and Hania are beautiful even for the Greek standards.
