Our Cretan Adventure gives you the flexibility of seeing and doing what is important to you. A car rental will be waiting for you in Heraklion upon arrival. Make a point of visiting the palace of Knossos, the center of the Minoan civilization that flourished 4500 years ago and is one of the earliest recorded civilizations in Europe.
Leave Heraklion behind, and venture to Rethymnon for the night to explore the old town that was completely built by the Venetians.
You will have three days of leisure to enjoy the western city of Chania. This Venetian town and its beautiful old harbour will stay forever in your memory. From Chania, you should take the opportunity to trek the Samaria Gorge (the longest in Europe at 18 km). The beaches to the west of Chania are remarkable and should be at the top of your list of locations to visit while exploring this magnificent region of Crete.
A short flight will have you flying into Athens for 2 nights. You will have a chance to explore the city and take in the sights with an Athens City Tour which will take you right to the top of the Acropolis.
This Cretan Adventure is a mini vacation with huge opportunities to take in Greece’s beautiful culture and nature.
