Crete is the largest and most southerly Greek island, and visitors arrive in their thousands during the summer months to spend lazy days on the superb beaches, or to sample its rich historical remains and scenic variety.

Wandering around the island's main towns of Iraklion (Heraklion) and Hania (Chania) is a pleasure; most of the famous sights are easily accessible on foot. A good idea is to combine your visit with a look at the island's outstanding history, followed by a few days relaxing on one of the many stunning beaches.

Many of Crete's treasures are hidden inland and require a car to reach. Located in the national park starting at the village of Omalos, the Samaria Gorge is alone worth the trip to Crete and is popular with hikers. Leave the overdeveloped tourist trail and visit countless villages, spectacular scenery, hidden beaches and lesser known archaeological, historical and cultural sites.

This rugged, mountainous island located in the Aegean is oblong in shape and is the fourth-largest island in the Aegean/Mediterranean region. Crete's more notable features are the endless beaches and magnificent mountains, as well as intriguing caves and resonant gorges.

Crete is home to the oldest civilization of Europe. The Minoan civilization predates that of the rest of Europe by a good few hundred years. The temples and palaces they built were the basis of many myths and are still one of the most impressive archaeological sites.

There are many connections by sea and air to Crete. The island has two airports and the visitor has the choice of entering at one and leaving from the other. Both are located close to their respective towns. There are numerous car ferry services from Greece and Italy, including overnight sleepers. Services from the more remote ports, off-season, however, are limited.
