Re: 1 day in Crete

by StefanosS

Is it the port of Heraklion or of Chania? Both are usual destinatios of cruise-ships. Crete island is quite big.

From Heraklion you can visit the archaelogical site of Knossos and admire the old Minoan civillization. Later you can stroll in the old city of Heraklion and enjoy an afternoon or evening in "Plateia me ta liontaria" (= Lions' square).

In Chania, stroll in the old city and later enjoy a sunset at the cafes of the old port.

Travel Tips for Crete Island

Great beaches and clear blue skies

by Roadrunnermike

Ease of travel and very friendly and helpful people, crete has every thing the tourist needs and a visit to Knossos is not to be missed. Rich in vegetation, this green plateau, set against the arid mountain slopes, once had hundreds of cloth-sailed windmills scattered over the plains, used to irrigate the land. Sadly petrol powered pumps are now replacing this wonderful sight.

SITIA

by RACCOON1

Sitia is a small village on the north east coast of Crete . If you are going to the beaches at "VAI" you will probably stop in Sitia.

There is not much to do in Sitia except eat Baklava and drink OUZO with the locals in the town bar. If you are lucky they may be serving octopus .

You can hike up into the hills to the north west . The coast like is quite rugged and can be impressive after a storm ( major waves ).

Sitia is also a stop for ferries going to Santorini . Check the schedules . If the ferry shows up you are doing good . The ferry ride from Sitia to Santorini after spending some time in the Sitia bar the night before.

Big waves , a small ferry and ouzo do not mix . But the cliffs of Santorini were worth it.

Free dessert!

by AcornMan

Unlike other places I have visited in Greece, it was very common on Crete to receive a small complimentary dessert after a meal. We were most often given halva, ice cream, or fruit, all of which go great with the complimentary raki we also received. In Elos we received fresh cherries that were the best I have ever tasted. In fact, we even brought the seeds home and planted them. With any luck we'll have our own Cretan cherry trees in a few years!

Anogia,Try to dodge the bullets

by kat-m

Well just a slight exageration maybe, we took off for the hills and drove peacefully through lots of little villages on our way to Anogia. On the way we drove past 3 police blockades, and noticed quite a lot of signposts with bullet holes in them. On arrival in Anogia we were quite delighted with the village and were made very welcome by all we met. The usual tourist wares were hanging in doorways and small shops selling oil,raki,and woven goods. The kafenion in the square was a delight and the locals were not impressed by a convoy of jeeps driving through and blasting horns. A village worth a visit and the drive up is very scenic. Oh and incidently the police presence is down to last year the village was raided and a large amount of marahuana siezed, but not before a gun battle had taken place between the villagers and the police!

travelling around

by chancay

also near to Matala are a lot of beautiful little villages to discover. Enjoy the architecture of old greek buildings, it doesn´t have to be always antique, I mean ruins of old greek cultures, also current older buildings have its wonderful charme.
