Our first stop is the Monastery of Kera. It is dedicated to Virgin Mary; it is run by nuns and is locally known as Little Lourdes.
Then we drive south and reach the Plateau of Lassithi. The Plateau is a wonderfully cool and fertile area where you will see small towns and a very warm welcome.
After the lunch break in one of the local villages in Lassithi, we will visit the Dicti Cave where Zeus, the father of Greek Gods, was born. While crossing the villages of the Plateau, we pay a short visit at a traditional pottery factory, seeing an ancient ceramic art, which completes today more than 8.000 years of history.
Last but not least we will visit the most famous and popular of all the attractions in Crete, the Palace of Knossos. Join your expert guide on a journey back of 5000 years into myths and legends and learn secrets of the oldest civilization in Europe, the Minoan. Enjoy a guided tour of the historical site with 1.300 rooms, hear all about the legendary labyrinth and the Minotaur.
