Crete is one of the most beautiful, interesting and diverse Greek islands to explore. Stroll along the harbour – guarded by a Venetian fortress – of its capital, Heraklion. Look out across the Lasithi Plateau, dotted with white-sailed windmills, then peek into the cave where Zeus is said to have been born. Sit back as the rugged, mountainous landscape of western Crete slides by, and enjoy a drink with new friends in one of charming Rethymnons harbourside bars.
