Crete is the biggest and one of the most beautiful islands of Greece. It is divided into four regions: Chania, Rethymnon, Heraklion, and Lasithi.

The island of Crete has a long history as it was inhabited thousands of years ago and it has seen many conquerors throughout the years, who have left their permanent marks on the island. Crete offers many different places for someone to explore, from traditional villages with historical alleys to bigger cities.

Some of the places you must see in Crete with the safety and comfort of our cars are:

Chania:

The second-largest city with old narrow lanes leading down to the fishing harbor.

Split into two parts: The Old Town (considered the most beautiful urban district on Crete), and the Modern City, in which most local live and work. Also you must visit, Samaria Gorge one of the largest gorges in Europe and two of the best beaches in Crete Balos bay and the pink beach of Elafonisi.

 

Rethymno:

Buildings dating from the 16th century, arched doorway, stone staircases, Byzantine and Hellenic-Roman remains, the small Venetian harbor and narrow streets are a must-see.
