Crete Video Guide

Crete is the largest island in Greece, and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean. Here, you can admire the remnants of brilliant civilizations, explore glorious beaches, impressive mountainscapes, fertile valleys and steep gorges, and taste the island’s rich gastronomic culture. Crete is, after all, a small universe teeming with beauties and treasures that you will probably need a lifetime to uncover! Crete’s natural beauty is equaled only by the richness of its history.
