Let's talk about Crete...
There are two things we are real passionate in VisitCRETE. That’s Hospitality and Crete! …or should we say only CRETE, once that our island can be considered as the synonym of hospitality?
We love our land and we are very proud of it. Visitors can’t help falling in love with it, either. You see, once you travel to Crete, you will never forget the experience, it gets into you, it’s just unforgettable…
Crete is a beautiful island that has everything. It’s a crossroad of sea ways and cultures, rich in history and unique Mediterranean landscapes. Cosmopolitan, same time traditional. The Cretan land it self, in combination with its hospitality is what made the island one of the most popular travelling destinations in Greece and perhaps in Europe. An extraordinary place to be, that can satisfy even the most demanding visitor.
We really love hospitality and that’s why we would like to be your guide or to be more accurate your “e-guide”! This is the purpose of this blog to present you articles relevant to the largest and greater island of Greece. Tourist subjects, news, presentation of local sites, suggest cultural events, present hotel accommodations and anything you may suggest us to discuss, always relevant to the Cretan Tourism.
Our intention is to open a communication channel with all of you that love discussing things about the mythical Minoan land.
So, com’on, Let’s talk about Crete…
