Crete, Agios Nikolaos – Elounda – Areti monastery
After picking you up at the Agios Nikolaos port we will drive through jet-setting Elounda to the traditional village of Plaka, with views over the famous, former leper colony, Spinalonga Island, for a coffee stop. After, we will continue uphill through olive groves with beautiful views over the Mirabello Bay, to Areti Monastery. After this visit we will stop for local snacks (meze) or lunch at the traditional taverna.
With unforgettable Crete memories, we will come back to Agios Nikolaos where there will be enough time for a walk in the picturesque shopping streets and a farewell drink, while enjoying the view over the lake.
By this tour you will get some experiences of Crete’s unique art, intact nature, domestic culinary art and peoples’ every day life. This picturesque town, crowned by the freshwater lagoon which joins the salt water of the sea, and where Athena is alleged to have had a bath . . . will stay in your good memories forever.
