Many cruises of the Greek Isles feature Crete as one of the staple destinations, and the port town of Rethymnon makes for an excellent stop. From here, you can explore the ancient city of Knossos (where the minotaur was born) near Heraklion, before departing to the up-and-coming tourist destination of nearby Kythira. While exploring Crete, make sure to sample the local cuisine, bursting with Mediterranean flavor and Greek tradition. The beaches near Rethymnon are a great place to relax, while the adventure-seekers can explore the ruins and well-preserved architecture around the city, including the Fortezza 16th century citadel, museums, and ancient tombs. The Venetian and Turkish influence can be seen all around Crete's narrow streets. It's no wonder that this is the legendary home of Zeus. Contact us to start planning!
