THE HEART OF CRETE, WHERE TRADITION IS THE PROTAGONIST
Sightseen, Culture & local gems , Less than 1 hour walking
A journey through the heart of Crete to surround ourselves with centuries old traditions and marvel in front of the evocative scenery. Discover the village of Peza, which has been producing wine ever since Minoan times (over four thousand years ago!) and which currently produces 70% of all the wine consumed on the island. Take a selfie or two in front of Mount Juktas or among the findings of the enchanting Vathypetro archaeological site. Stroll along the stone alleyways (which have just been restored!) of the picturesque village of Archanes and enjoy a landscape made up of colourful flowers, fruit trees and amazing balconies - the ideal place to get carried away by the scents, sounds and views typical of Crete. Last but not least, Heraklion: the history of the island capital will unfold through its monuments and imposing masterpieces such as the Morosini fountain, the loggia and the fortress bear witness to the prolonged Venetian domination.
