This package is specifically designed to give travelers a thorough experience of Crete, the largest Greek island which marks the boundary between Europe and Africa. Its diverse geography contains imposing mountains, deep gorges and fruitful valleys covered with palm and cedar forests, olive trees, orange groves and vineyards. Before all that though you get the chance to feel the pulse of the capital and immerse yourself in ancient Greek history via a meticulously planned sightseeing tour. The lively nightlife of Athens is sure to accommodate every taste, with bars and restaurants of all kinds spread around the city.

In Crete you will get a taste of the traditional lifestyle, in an island famous for its warm hospitality. While exploring the island you will find old stone farmhouses, monasteries, villages perched on mountain ridges, castles and chapels forgotten on steep slopes and Venetian ports, all of which have rendered Crete a favorite destination of many. The island's distance from the mainland has led to the creation of customs and traditions that you won't find anywhere else in Greece. On the same note, Crete is home to numerous delicacies that are an amalgamation of Mediterranean cuisine, local produce and Anatolian spices, thus this package also entails an abundance of meals to maximize your Cretan experience.

Why not enrich this experience with the ever-popular Santorini?
