The Greek sea of Crete

During your stay in Crete, however, not only relaxation awaits you, because the island offers many activities to its visitors: for example, we recommend that you discover the Venetian and Turkish architecture of the city of Rethimno and go shopping among the boutiques on the seafront of Agios Nikolaos, one of the most popular destinations in Crete! Not to be missed, of course, is a visit to the Palace of Knossos where you can retrace the myth of the Minotaur and admire the ruins of the labyrinth.

Crete

The island of the Minotaur

There is no exaggeration to calling Crete the island of myths: from that of Theseus and the Minotaur linked by Ariadne's thread, Crete is full of legend and authentic Greek culture, with the ruins of the Palace of Knossos silently guarding this enchanted place. Between one piece of history and another, take a trip to Agios Nikolaos, the most glamorous area of Crete, where you'll find boutiques, chic shops and trendy restaurants that mix with traditional taverns and craft shops.

  • Stroll through the Venetian harbour of Rethimno
  • Visit the ancient ruins of the Palace of Knossos
  • Don't miss the picturesque Agios Nikolaos
