This tour starts from Rethymnon

Leaving Rethymnon town, we will explore the countryside with our first stop being at Arkadi, a beautiful monastery with a rich history, an eternal symbol for the Cretan fights for freedom and independence. After our guiding, we will continue to visit the Acropolis at Eletherna, where excavations are still underway by the adjacent archaeological site. Our last stop will be at the traditional village of Margarites. Apart from its beautiful panoramic view, the village boasts Venetian buildings with magnificent doorframes, the Byzantine churches of Agios Ioannis Theologos and Agios Georgios, as well as a good number of typical pottery workshops spread around its tiny alleys, as the traditional art of pottery is still flourishing here. We will wander around and see some of the craftsmen working – a hands-on activity can also be added on request. We will return to Rethymnon after enjoying a typical lunch in the village

Tour includes: 
  • Private transport with a/c deluxe mini-van
  • English speaking qualified guide
