Explore Crete

If there was a beauty contest for Greek islands, Crete would surely be among the favorites. Crete (Κρήτη / Kriti, occasionally spelled "Krete" in English) is the largest of the Greek islands .Crete is approximately 260 km long and 60 km wide.
Crete consists of four prefectures: Chania, Rethimno, Heraklion and Lasithi.
Crete, with a population of approximately 650,000, is not just sun, sea and sand; it is a quite distinct place full of vitality, warmth, hospitality, culture and of course an excellent infrastructure.
Crete is well known for its seas and beaches but it has a very contrasting landscape. The island goes from fertile coastal plains to rugged mountains and from busy metropolitan cities to very peaceful hillside villages.
If you travel throughout Crete you can clearly see remnants of Roman and Turkish aqueducts and architecture from when these people invaded the island long ago. You will also find ancient Minoan ruins around the island.
