I am traveling with a couple friends. We wonder what part of the island to stay at (flying in) and what are the top things to do/see while there for 2-3 days. Thank you!
Hi Sophie! In my opinion, there are two ways to do Crete in three days. Stay in Heraklion,which is not a very charming city, but the biggest city on Crete, and concentrate on Minoan Culture. Visit the Palace of Knosos, and the Palace of Phaistos. The Heraklion Archaeological Museum is top notch as well. The other choice would be to just chill in Chania and maybe take a day trip to Rethymno, or work down to some fantastic, and very isolated beaches south of Chania. Safe travels!
