      crete itinerary

      by BobWaldman Online Now Apr 14, 2014 at 9:26 AM

      I appreciate everyone's help with my itinerary so far. I think we have a final itinerary but I have one more question.
      We have a total of 14 days. Our itinerary so far is as follows:
      Chania 3 nights
      Loutro 3 nights
      Rethymomn 3 nights
      Enagron Ecotourism Village 3 nights
      Iraklion 2 nights

      What advice would you give about going to Agios Nikolas instead of Enagron?

      Hi,
      I'm due to visit Crete next week and I was wondering if the fact that I have 6 points, and the very old paper only copy of the drivers license, would be a major issue ?

    • Help with Iraklion Street Names

      by emyersjr Online Now Sep 7, 2013 at 10:52 AM

      I lived on Crete from 1969 a 1971 as a USAF dependent ( father was stationed on Iraklion AFB). I want to take my family to Crete within the next year - in hope of paying a visit to the section of Iraklion where we once lived. I remember heading west of the base and while riding the school bus along a winding mountain road. The section of town we lived in was a short walking distance from Lions Square. Although I do realize that Crete has undergone a lot of changes over the past 40 years, does anyone know where I can get my hands on a (English Translated) map of Iraklion from the late 60's or early 70's? I'm not too sure of the spelling but I'm looking for a street named Methosa. In addition, I'm searching for any information regarding a small hotel from that time frame by the name of Hotel Delaney (agin, not sure of the spelling). The hotel sat on a hill and overlooked a small fishing village. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    • Tips on holiday in Crete with limited mobility

      by Teasel- Online Now Sep 2, 2013 at 1:08 AM

      I will be in Crete later on this week with my sister, who has permanent pain in her ankle, and can only walk very slowly and really not far. The original plan was to stay in our hotel and pool, or go to the closest beach. She now thinks we should get buses to other beaches. I know it will vary from place to place but any idea how far in meters it will be from where a bus drops you off to the beach?
      Any other tips on something that we could do for a bit of variety, or when it's too hot to be on the beach, that we could get to easily? Could be a general suggestion - ie whether a cafe is happy for you to sit in and read a book even if you're only buying the ocasssional drink, or specific places.
      We'll be staying in Rethymnon, a small hotel called Thalassi.
      Thanks

      Should we Stay at a hotel right in Iraklion...or get a better deal outside of the main city

      by Elyzabeth Online Now Jun 28, 2013 at 5:36 AM

      They say the bus will only take 20 minutes to get into town, but these places are not always honest, it is not the distance I am asking about, but the reputation of the busses on Crete, In some places we have gone to, the busses are either very erratic or way overcrowded... Can anyone advise me about this? Also we can either stay out of Iraklion and get a great deal.. or we can stay in the main city itself and get a less favourable deal

      There are two ways to go - via Iraklion or via Ierapetra. Which way is faster? I'm sure each is spectacular , but there may be a good reason to choose one as better? We are hoping to cover the distance in a day if possible.

    • Getting around for 17 days.....

      by Tommmo Online Now Dec 13, 2012 at 8:00 PM

      So...with some help about arriving Heraklion at Easter , we have decided to drive from the airport and go straight to Ag Nik even though it will be at night. Ag.Nik. seems a much better place to hang out for a few days.
      So, after a couple of days exploring the Eastern end we should head towards the south in the car , as this sounds more like our kind of area.
      We can probably see Knossos and the museum on our return to Heraklion.
      So, ..what would be the best driving route from Gulf of Mirabella to the south coast?
      Then from Preveli Beach should we head North to Rethymno and to Chania
      and maybe base ourselves there to explore the West ?
      We seem to be able to rent the car for Eu 135 week so it is possible for us to use it throughout - though there is then the pressure to use it instead of just lying around sometimes!
      Advice on a great route around the island for the 17 days would be greatly appreciated..........thanks

      Crete, hostels, places early November end of October

      by polyesta Online Now Oct 25, 2012 at 4:28 AM

      Aloha.

      I just arrived on Crete today. Being a big fan of Youth hostels I went for the one youth hostel in Heraklion that got good reviews. Rent Rooms Hellas in Heraklion is closed, unfortunately. The other one I did not check. Just reading about it made me itch.
      Rent Rooms Hellas is closed for ever, I just got an email that told me this.

      It is off- season. Almost November. Does anybody have tips for youth hostels on Crete that are still open?
      I checked Plakias, they are packing up this weekend ;(

      I like youth hostels because it is a great way to meet fellow travellers. But other places with good communial spaces are alos good for meeting people.

      Do any of you have good tips on hostels and places to stay where there are good communial spaces. Like a rooftop terras, garden, kitchen etc.

      I know I am a lazy git for posting it like this, but: Any tips on must see/do things where there's also good accomodation would be great ;-)
