Crete: The Perfect Vacation Destination


Greece, with its Mediterranean climate and many islands is one of the most beautiful countries in the world to visit. April, May, September and October are considered to the months with the best climate for vacationers. The largest island in Greece is Crete which is located along the Mediterranean Sea. The history of Crete dates back as far as 7000 - 3000 B.C. but many consider the history of the Crete people to not have begun until the Minoan civilization arose. Visitors can begin to learn about the early history of Crete, as well as the Minoans when they visit the Palace of Knossos. For those who truly love historical or archaeological sites, a visit to Gortys should not be ignored. Here you can see archaeological finds such as the Roman Baths, the Temple of Apollo, and the Plane Tree which plays a huge role in the Greek myth of Zeus.

For families who enjoy not only the water, but tours, you will certainly enjoy riding on a Catamaran while touring such places as Santorini. Once there, the entire family can ride a donkey to the top of the island and enjoy a great panoramic view of the sunsets, as well as one of the most beautiful views of the island while visiting the Prophet Elias Monastery. While on the island, enjoy walking along the steaming volcanic craters. You certainly do not want to leave without taking some breathtaking photographs to send home to friends and family.

Crete does not lack in beautiful white sandy beaches with clear, blue waters for not only sunbathing, but swimming, snorkeling and many other water activities. Of course, there are numerous water parks for the kids to have loads of fun.

A stay in Crete is not complete without the perfect accommodations which will suit every need of your entire family, including those that may have mobility problems or even be restricted to a wheelchair. There are villas available which provide for most of your families needs on the main floor, along with private pools and other wonderful amenities.

When packing for your Crete holidays, be sure to take plenty of summer clothing, comfortable shoes and sandals, along with plenty of sunscreen and mosquito repellents. If you plan to do a lot of shopping, or even walking, be sure to use baggage or backpacks that are comfortable, lightweight and those with wheels. There is not much need to stock up on bottled water, since there is an ample amount of fresh spring water available.
