CRETE (The dream land)

The largest and southernmost island in Greece, Crete marks the boundary between Europe and Africa. Its majestic mountains, gorges and valleys covered with palm and cedar forests, olive trees, orange groves and vineyards, its old stone farmhouses, monasteries and villages perched on mountain ridges, its castles and chapels forgotten on steep slopes, have all lured travellers since time immemorial. Its shores, lined with forbidding rocks, are often inaccessible but there are also several inviting sandy or pebble beaches. The north side of the island, with the main city ports of Heraklion, Chania, Rethymno, Aghios Nikolaos and Sitia is more developed. You can fly from Athens to Heraklion or Chania in only 55 minutes or take the ferry (9 hours).
