    Anyone been to Crete?

    Has anyone traveled to Crete? I've heard it's the best of everything. I've heard the beaches in front of the mountains are beautiful! I've also heard that they have a lot of historical architecture that is showing right on the streets and sidewalks. Apparently you'll also need to bring a language book, because many of the locals don't speak English.

    Anyone been there? What is it like?

    Of course, it would be downright wrong to be traveling to Crete without seeing its on-the-money sun and sand combo. Interestingly enough, the serenity of its beaches is surrounded by such contrasting landscape and scenery. Here, you can expect green plains, seashores and rugged mountains interspersed throughout metropolitan cities and quiet villages. Simply put, it has a little bit of everything.

    From your description, Crete sounds like an ideal place to spend someone's life in! How can it get any better than metropolitan cities interspersing with mountains and the sea? When my parents visited Greece some years back, they said they wished to make it their retirement escape, haha. Being Greece, it will have a tremendously rich history, which I'm sure shows itself through the country's architecture and culture. I would really love to visit someday.

    Go to Santorini and enjoy yourself down there. Crete is not the ideal place to spend your life in, but Santorini definitely is. It's like a peace of heaven down on Earth!

    Lusi, here I want to tell you it is not a city it is a beautiful Greek island. It is one of the fifth largest and most populous islands of the Mediterranean Sea. You can see countless glorious beaches, impressive mountainscapes, fertile valleys and steep gorges.

    Crete is the largest Island Greece. I visited there about three years ago. I enjoy there a lot. I had great experience there. It is an ideal place for nature lovers. If you are nature lover so I suggest you should go there once and could make their remember able tour. I hope you will fully enjoy there.

    I have been to Crete Island with my friends. We all had great time there and enjoyed nature's majestic views. Instead of nature viewing there are plenty of tourist traps and historical places that keeps us busy. Even we were there for one 2 day and three night tour but spend whole week. Palace of Knossos, Samaria Gorge National Park, Cretaquarium and Venetian Fortezza these are some of not to miss destinations of that island.

    Crete is just Amazing. It is practically a destination in itself. You can spend a whole summer there no problem. If you are looking to relax, enjoy the sea and nature and go hiking then Crete is for you. If you are looking to party then you should go to another Island like Mykonos or Santorini.

    Crete has 3 main towns Chania, Heraklion, and Rethimno. In the south you will find several villages popular with tourists.

    Crete is a wonderful and destination for having enjoyment. There are many fabulous attractions but I have a good experience of Elafonisi because I have been there about few years ago with my cousins. We stay there for one week to enjoy incredible beauty of this amazing attractions. In my point of view it is a great place of nature lovers.
