Encircled by water from all the four sides, Crete is the largest Island of Greece
and second largest in the whole East Mediterranean region. Lying 160 km south
of mainland of Greece, Crete is one of the major tourist destinations of the country.
As the centre of Minoan Civilization (the oldest civilization in Europe) in the
past era, Crete features numerous attractive sites to explore. The striking high
mountain range formed by White Mountains, the Idi range, the Dikti Mountains,
Kedros, and Thripti give Crete another magnetic appeal. Long sandy beaches, exotic
flora and fauna, magnificent ancient sites, unique shopping experience and the
flavor of variety of traditional cuisine add more glitters to this gem of Greece.

Rethymno, and Samaria Gorge along with other places of interest. World-class accommodation
arrangements for every type of travelers are another notable mark of Crete. You
