Explore the island at your pace and dine in Ammoudi, the small picturesque port under Oia where fresh fish and other delicacies can be found in its famous taverns. Spend your afternoon visiting traditional wineries and sampling a fine selection of Santorini’s volcanic wines, and learn more about its 4,000 years old wine-making history.
- Crete is your next stop. The largest island of Greece and the southernmost point of Europe which has many landscapes and experiences to offer. One of which may include a day trip to Balos or Elafonisi beach (which has recently been awarded as a top 25 beach in the world). Both are spectacular and breathtaking sandy beaches! You will have plenty of time to enjoy the crystal-clear waters and visual sights that will be burned into your memory for a lifetime.
- According to the season, you will be able to have your days’ adventures tailored to your desires. During a day trip up the mountain, you will experience, first-hand, tasting and even making homemade cheese, eating freshly harvested honey and cooking local delicacies under the shade of sprawling evergreen trees on outdoor grills.
- A visit to the Old Market in Chania (full of fresh produce and local crafts) is always accompanied by the tastes and flavors of Crete’s delicious, homemade food. You should not miss a visit to Knossos, Europe’s most ancient city, where, according to ancient mythology, the Labyrinth of the Minotaur was located. A day trip to picturesque Sfakia, which is known for the courage of the partisan resistance during WWII, should be included to experience a more modern but no less dramatic history of the region.
- Cretans are known for their hospitality, their pride for their land and the food that they will put in front of you at every opportunity.
