About Crete:

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.

About Greece:

Greece is one of the world’s most visited countries. With the Aegean Sea to the East of the mainland, the Ionian Sea to the West, the Mediterranean Sea to the South and a vast number of islands, Greece boasts some 16,000 kilometres of coastline.

Greece is a country rich with diversity, from its mountainous mainland to the stunning islands with their whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches. Many of the Greek beaches have been awarded the Blue Flag, while the country’s rich history and legacy has left it with 18 UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The Greek mainland is easily reached by ferry across the Adriatic Sea from Italy while domestically, due to the sheer number of islands, there are many ferry companies and a range of services on offer. The majority of the domestic ferries are modern, though the class of ferry differs based on the journey type. The longer routes are served by conventional passenger ferries, while the shorter inter island routes are served by high speed catamarans and hydrofoils.
