Crete is Greece's largest island located on the southern side of the Aegean Sea.  Due to its size and rich culture it offers visitors an amazing experience while discovering its history and traditional character.

 

DAY ONE

Your door to door pick-up service will transfer you to the airport for your flight to Crete, a local coach will transfer you to the Silva Beach Hotel, your base for the next 7 nights.

During our stay on Crete, the following excursions will be included:

  • Tour of the Minoan Palace of Knossos, where we will feel the myths and legends come alive in Europe's first palace.

 

  • Heraklion, the capital of Crete with its recently restored Venetian Castle and the famous Morosine Fountain, plus a visit to the Archeological Museum.

 

  • Visit Chania town, regarded as 'Venice of the East' and not unjustly, as the most beautiful city in Greece.

 

  • Excursion to the town of Rethymno which maintains its Venetian and Ottoman grandeur and the largest fortress in Crete, the majestic Fortezza.
