Crete

Fiercely independent Crete, Europe's first advanced civilization is steeped in Homeric history and culture. This mountainous island has been the home of many a family vendetta. Rich fertile plains laden with fruit, hidden villages steeped in folklore, long sandy beaches fringed with palms are all to be discovered on Greece's largest island.

Exquisite Venetian and Turkish buildings, winding lanes and colourful markets characterize the historical port town of Chania. Visit the Palace of Knossos, home of the legendary Minotaur, trek through the 18 kilometre Samaria Gorge, explore fantastic mountain-biking territory and enjoy a variety of water sports. In the evenings, sample great Cretan cuisine and local wines at any number of tavernas
