Visiting Crete, requires that you will make a visit in traditional villages. We organized a full day trip for you, in order to have the unique privilege to tour some of the most picturesque villages!

A very beautiful daily tour  with a small walk and coffee  stop in the colorful village of Margarites, to see the village,  and admire the wonderful traditional colorful ceramics, and the wonderful view of the adjacent gorge overgrown with local varieties of trees. In the area from ancient times there have been and still are excellent pottery workshops, where we can visit and see from below the process of handmade construction of these objects.

Then we will visit the amazing Archaeological Museum of Eleftherna with the wonderful findings of the neighboring ancient city, an Archaeological «Jewelry» Museum for our island. Although smaller in size, it is equivalent to those of Delphi, Olympia, Vergina. It was created to house the results of the excavations that have been carried out for thirty years in the ancient city of Eleftherna. The great exhibition is framed by original and modern audiovisual applications.

We will continue to visit Arkadi monastery he most sacred symbol of Cretan freedom, dedicated to the archangels Michael and Gabriel.

We will continue to visit a small part of “The gorge of Patsos” which is known for the cavernous church of Agios Antonios, which in antiquity was a cult cave dedicated to Kranios Hermes. Water springs around the rocks, while water flows over the temple. A path with wooden bridges and stairs that crosses a narrow gorge and ends in a church in a cave, while everywhere there are nests of birds. At the same area  we can have our lunch,  with we can enjoy uniquely delicious Cretan traditional food.

In the afternoon we can   visit and walk in the traditional old town of Rethymnon city , to see historical data from all the periods of the conquerors of our island, Roman, Venetian, Ottoman etc)
