As the largest island in Greece and one of the biggest in the Mediterranean, Crete might just be the best place in all of the country to experience by road, one town at a time.
With an itinerary that takes travellers to five destinations across Crete, Tempo Holidays’ ‘Charming Crete Self-drive‘ is a fantastic option for wayfarers eager to appreciate what the island has to offer, over the course of a week.
Here’s a breakdown of five of the sites travellers will see – and never forget – on the Charming Crete Self-drive tour.
Knossos Palace at Crete, Greece – the largest Bronze Age archaeological site on Crete, and the ceremonial and political centre of the Minoan civilisation.
Summertime is the best time to see the city streets of Chania, Crete.
Admire the landmarks of Crete in the old town of Rethymnon.
Explore the adjacent cliffs of Matala beach, Crete, or skip the pleasantries and dive in after an afternoon of top-notch Greek cuisine.
The opus of your Cretian self-drive journey is a visit to Agios Nikolaos, one of the most photographed sites of Crete, and the Agios Nikolaos church in Kotsifou Canyon.
