“Megalónisos”, the “Great Island”, is the Greek moniker for Crete and indeed it is almost a country unto itself. Its towns and villages are a marvelous display of different landscapes and atmospheres, from picturesque mountainous villages to laid-back seaside resorts, to busy modern towns. One element however permeates them all: the famous Cretan hospitality, a trait deeply ingrained in the Cretan way of life. Crete’s rich monastic history is best presented at Toplou Monastery, housing remarkable works of art, Byzantine icons and other exhibits that reflect the course of Cretan history. Another typically…Cretan thing to do is walk in the streets of Rethymno, this labyrinthine maze of alleys, squares with Venetian era fountains like the Rimondi, built in 1628, churches and mosques. Sitia, this not very touristy town of Crete, is another important destination promising a peaceful vacation in an attractive seaside town topped by a ruined Venetian castle.
