Crete is a unique and a special place to visit. It is the largest island in the country and the holiday destination of around 2 million tourists a year. Repeater visitors tend to come to Crete at least once a year to taste the beauties the island offers, the famous Cretan hospitality, the Mediterranean climate and the beaches of crystal-clear water.
The island is ideal to spend not just the summer holidays but the winter ones as well, as it offers beautiful beaches and coves as well as snowy mountain tops appropriate for hiking, mountain and rock climbing. Spend your days guided around the Minoan palaces, walk on the paved Roman roads, admire the Byzantine temples; explore the Venetian and Turkish fortresses. In Crete, you will find the modern holiday resorts offering hospitality and entertainment all day long, while just a few kilometers away, the dozens of villages that are awaiting for you to be discovered follow a different pace of life, preserving local traditions, language and customs. What makes Crete a special place is the unique combination of natural beauty, history, civilisation and tradition.
