In Chania, we’ll discover the seaside cuisine, visit the mountains, and talk with winemakers. Then, we’ll travel to Heraklion and see what was essentially the ancient capital of the Mediterranean Sea. We’ll discover the thriving metropolitan city, the historic ruins of Knossos, and we’ll visit the surrounding wine regions. We’ll head east to spend two days in relaxed Sitia, where we’ll visit the famous beach of Crete. Then, we’ll drive through the wild oregano bushes back to the city.
