Crete Island

Crete is the largest island in Greece, and the fifth largest one in the Mediterranean Sea. Here, the visitor can admire the remnants of brilliant civilizations, explore glorious beaches, fertile valleys and steep gorges.

Crete is also fast becoming a destination that offers great excitement as an authentic gastronomic experience. A culinary tour of Crete is a journey into the culture of the island. Discovery of the secrets of Cretan cuisine is an invitation to sample the art of living.

Cretan cities like Chania, Rethimnon and Heraklion offer memories of its rich Minoan, Hellenic, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian, Ottoman and Greek past. The hinterland of Crete hides many unique plant species, mammals and rare vultures. Many places can be discovered on foot thanks to a largely intact network of walking trails.
