Island of Crete, Greece

By dtourstravel_admin,


Far from the masses on the famous beaches of Mykonos and Santorini, the island of Crete still shows you authentic Greece.  Why not spend the day in quiet and traditional villages and monasteries on the east end of this large and interesting island? You’ll find rural villages, hilly landscapes, abandoned settlements and mills, atmospheric monasteries and white churches. You can end your day in the small village of Fourni with a homemade Cretan meal in a cozy family-owned taverna.  Look around you at the village’s picturesque square and relax under the welcoming shade of a huge sycamore tree. Your return will include sweeping panoramic views over Mirambelo Bay. And you can still go to the beach that day!
