Crete is located in the most southern part of Greece and is also the biggest among the Greek islands. Crete divides the Aegean from the Libyan Sea and designates the boundary between Africa and Europe. The island is famous for being the birthplace of Zeus and is rich in history, natural beauties and wealthy archeological findings. Scenery rapidly alters from the abundant olive and orange tree valleys, to soaring mountains and plateaus cut by wide gorges.One can still find well-kept stone farmhouses, untouched by technology, tiny villages and hidden monasteries. Crete will entice everyone with something different – from lively night life, to secluded beaches and grand resorts.
