Enter a land of rugged scenery, beautiful coastline and a rich and ancient history

Travel back in time at the ancient Minoan Palace of Knossos, or explore the wild landscape of western Crete with its snow-capped mountains, hill villages and winding coast.

The island's capital of Heraklion is home to several fine museums, while a little further east is the town of Hersónissos, a busy resort with a choice of shops and tavernas, plus the old town inland.

The traditional village of Koutouloufari is close by, and makes a good base for those who want to explore further afield.
