Crete is the largest island in Greece situated in the southern Aegean Sea, boasting a wealth of gorgeous harbours, beaches and hilltop towns.
Not only is the natural landscape filled with stunning backdrops, the wonderfully unique culture, cuisine and history are inescapable too.
You’ll come across awe-inspiring palaces, Renaissance buildings and picturesque Venetian ruins. Or you may spot some locals performing Cretan dances and playing music using stringed instruments called lyres and laoutos, offering a Greek island experience like no other.
Crete has a number of excellent ferry ports along its north coast, and, thanks to its location in the southern Aegean, offers numerous routes to the other Greek islands and Athens to the north. This makes Crete an excellent departure point for exploring both the country’s mainland and many beautiful islands.
The Ionian Islands are a group of Greek Islands off the West coast of Greece in the Ionian Sea, also known as the Western Greek Islands. The Islands we traditionally called Heptanese which means “the Seven Islands” in Greek, symbolising the seven principal islands in the group.
Unlike the Cyclades, the Ionian Islands are known to be flourishing with greenery. With distinct tradition, cuisine and architecture on each of the islands, it is hard not to fall for the Ionian Islands.
