I'm sharing some extended details of my Greek Islands trip from the other year while busy with work. The trip itinerary can be found here.
Iraklio is a lovely little city. It feels very modern European, but not very large. Knossos, with the Greek ruins, is a nice side trip in between towns. Plakias is the ultimate laid-back beach town with cheap-ish fruity drinks in the sand at night. Spili, with the tastiest spring water, is on the way to Rethymno which has an old fortress with a beautiful view. Chania's Venetian port is a lovely tourist destination with great beaches in the surrounding villages.
I may've gone for work, but staying for the vacation was a wise decision.
- Crete, 8 days
- Santorini, 2 days
- Athens, 1 day
