bus journey

by bernardbrown

Can anyone tell me how long the bus ride is from Iraklion to Chania, please?

Re: bus journey

Perhaps a little longer Elena...2 and a half?

Re: bus journey

by Elena_blue

yes, may be.
it's been long time ... :o)

Re: bus journey

I've just had a reply from a lady living in Chania and she reckons an hour and a quarter to an hour and a half. She also warns me not to eat on anything during the ride since edibles other than sweets are illegal.
This is an amazing site. Thanks everyone.

I think the lady in Chania is giving you the trip time from Rethymnon - it's definately over the 2 hour mark - even if your bus driver DOESN'T stop for a kafedaki in Rethymno!!

Re: bus journey

I think 2.5hrs is a better bet. Better be sure etc. Thanks, elenitsa. Tony

Travel Tips for Crete Island

Explore the inland

by Helga67

Away from the coastal regions, the interior is a far less well known part of Crete. This is the mountainous area of Crete; the roads may be really bad, the road signs are of little help and it's hard to find an English speaking person, but it's a lovely experience. It is the place to meet the real Cretans.

Prefecture of Chania

by Lilasel

The Prefecture of Chania covers the west part of the island. It has an area of 2,376 km and approximately 134,000 residents. It is mainly a mountainous region (with famous gorge of Samaria) but it is also characterized by velvet beaches (Falassarna, Elafonissi, Balos, Preveli), particularly on its south part where it meets the Libyan Sea.
The prefecture of Chania constitutes a special place which offers amazing natural beauties and also various comforts, without spoiling its physiognomy.

Cretan food

by Spincat

Cretans are the longest lived people in Europe, and it is hard to know whether this good health comes from their genes, the food, the climate, exercise afforded by living on a steep slope, or the pace of life.

I find Greek food delicious - much of what I enjoy comes from its freshness and flavour.

Dishes you are likely to come across include

Tzatziki: Yoghurt, cucumber, garlic.
Melitzana : an aubergine dip (gorgeous)
Dolmades: stuffed vine leaves
Kalamari : fried squid
Tiropita/Tiropitakia : little filo pastry pies filled with salty feta chees
Spanokopita: the same as above but including spinach
Taramasalata : cod roe pate (fabulous)
Keftedes - little meatballs
Horta : wild greens served luke warm

I particularly like Cretan baked dishes: moussaka is well known, but do try pastitisio - a very comforting dish. 'Yemistes' stuffed vegtables, can also be delicious.

Local wine, served in glass of tin carafes, adds to the flavour of it all. 'Kikkino' red is particularly potent and rich tasting.

Get out and explore

by Tracyden

The surrounding area of Melame is very rural, peaceful and quiet and great for wandering around. Watch out for the cats - although greek islands are famous for their catlife I've never seen so many in one place as here!

Narrow Passages

by gale.blog.pl

Each and every Cretean town has its narrow passages. I could walk those streets endlessly. They all have that special atmosphere you won't find anywhere else. And believe me, the houses do not seem to be falling apart.
