Tour Details

Archeology and culture are the highlights on this half day trip. The Monastery of Arkadi has played a big part in the Cretan Resistance as well as being a place for science and art since the 16th century. We visit the monastery and continue to the museum of Eleftherna where we get a stunning view over the excavated ancient city-state. The museum – Homer in Crete – exhibts a span of a period over three and a half millennia. Our last stop is in Margarites located in the picturesque green rolling hills of Rethymno. The village is well known for its pottery makers whose century – old ceramic tradition has made Margarites the undoubtedly most important pottery center of Crete.
