Through your visit in Crete you should be prepared to immerse yourself in roughly 8.000 thousand years of history and constant human presence. You will start with experiencing the living proof of the existence of Minoans – the first civilization that ever flourished in Europe, begging at 3000 BC. Wander through the remnants of Greeks and Romans that chose Crete as a main commercial hub and the Arab invasion evidence. Sense the atmosphere of Monasteries and the influence of the Byzantines, that are omnipresent and still vibrant on the island and marvel at the wonderful monuments of the Venetian rule that are adorning all of its cities. Finally, witness the strong influence of the Ottoman occupation as well as the contribution of Cretan people to modern day Greek –and European- history, all of them ready to be discovered in every corner of this amazing island.
