The island of Crete is one of the most mentioned places in the ancient Greek mythology. It is considered to be the motherland of the ancient Greek God Zeus; the goddess Athena bathed in local Lake Voulismeni; Hercules, in one of his labors, had to deal with the Cretan bull. The Minoan civilization with Crete as its heart was the Europe's first advanced civilization. The labyrinth of Knossos palace, the ceremonial and political centre of the Minoans, created the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.
Crete is the island of three colors: blue as the sea and the sky above, white as small boats floating in the Ionian Sea, and green as its forests full of cypresses, pines, chestnuts, and oaks. The sea and the beaches of Crete are famous worldwide for their sparkling blue water and the relaxing atmosphere. There is a wide range of sights to see in Crete: Knossos, Samaria Gorge, Spinalonga, Archeological museum and many others. If you get tired of busy and noisy towns of Hania, Heraklion and Rethymno with their shops, restaurants and historical attractions, you can always escape to some small traditional village for a dinner in a local tavern and to taste the delicious Mediterranean cuisine.
On the island, where each stone seems to have its own history, you can discover your special recipe of the perfect holidays. Let us show you Crete the way it is: a place where the traces of Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman cultures coexist and give birth to the unique atmosphere of the biggest and one of the most beautiful islands in Greece.
