TripAdvisor’s Top 25 Destinations of Europe 2018 were just announced, and Crete now sits at prestigious No. 4. However, us Minoans take great offense at not being chosen number one, since we gave you roads, usable toilets, and the world’s greatest EVER jewelry.
In the South of Crete there’s a little village on the sea called Tsoutsouras. It’s a sparkling and shiny little place where people go swimming in its “medicinal” waters, and where echoes of ancient cults and rites abound.
Crete, the largest island in Greece and the fifth in Mediterranean Sea, is also the most fascinating one. With a remarkable history which the traveler can admire all over the island, from the ruins of the Minoan Palace of Knossos to the Venetian fortress of Rethymo, Crete is renowned for its natural beauty, diverse landscape and fertile valleys and rich gastronomic culture. Crete simply has it all!
