Incredible Crete

Crete is a world of natural wonders. Sea-sculptured coasts, fabulous sandy beaches and deep gorges are contrasted by palm-tree shaded coasts, rugged mountains, silvery olive groves and cedar-covered sandy islets. An impressive and magnetic landscape imprinted by each era of the island’s rich history and culture: ancient ruins of the glorious Minoan civilization, byzantine churches, Venetian fortresses, historic monasteries and the very unique Cretan customs and traditions. Crete cannot described with a pen. You have to breath the Cretan air, listen to the fold songs, see the lively local dances performed by agile dancers, drink the local drink “tsikoudia” or “raki”, taste the Cretan cuisine, laze under the Cretan sun!
