As the largest island in Greece, Crete has more than its share of attractions. This 155 mile-long island is home to ruins of the Minoan and Venetian civilizations. Across this ancient island are numerous caves, cliffs, gorges and valleys to explore, as well as some of the best beaches in all of Greece. In addition you'll find picture-postcard villages and a real sense of the historic past at every turn. 

This rugged island is renowned for sunshiny days and magnificent scenery. Crete is reached by air from destinations throughout the Mediterranean, and also by ferry from most coastal cities and islands in Greece. crete
