Enjoy the rich burst of flavors from local greens and herbs that have been gathered from the mountains and experience the rich warmth of honey seasoned with local spices.
When in Crete, there is always more to explore and experience. Apart from its exquisite amalgamation of sun, sea and sand, the city is overflowing with hospitality, warmth, and vitality and stunning infrastructure.
