    Arkadi & Rethymno

    La Canea, Creta, Grecia

    Duración 5 horas

    Immerse yourself in Cretan history by touring a 16th-century monastery in the countryside and neighboring Rethymno, a town of Venetian origin.


    Depart from the pier and drive east onto a fertile plain where the acclaimed Arkadi Monastery was built in 1587. Constructed of honey-colored stone in a Renaissance style, the monastery has played a significant role in Cretan history. It has long been a pilgrimage site and a symbol of resistance after being attacked by Turkish troops in 1866. Many of the items from that conflict, including weapons and military banners, are proudly displayed in the monastery’s small museum. There are also a number of religious objects, the highlight being a 17th-century vestment embroidered in gold that depicts Christ and the 12 disciplines.


    After visiting the monastery, you will drive to nearby Rethymno, a coastal city with an abundance of restored buildings from the 16th century. The harbor is Venetian, the streets narrow and charming, and the history rich.


    While exploring, you might see Rimondi Fountain in Platanos square, several beautiful mosques, and the fragrant municipal gardens. The Fortezza castle dominates the landscape as it has since 1590, when it was built to protect Rethymno from pirates and Turks. Following your guided walking tour, you’ll have some free time to further explore on your own before returning to the pier.

    Knossos And Arolithos

    La Canea, Creta, Grecia

    Duración 8 horas

    Ancient history and rich traditions abound in Crete, as you will discover by visiting the excavated palace of the mythological king Minos and the village of Arolithos.


    Depart from the pier and settle in for a relaxing drive across northern Crete to Knossos, once the capital of ancient Minoan Crete. The area was first inhabited in the 7th millennium B.C., and its grandeur has been slowly revealed through archaeological excavation. The palace that once stood here was known as the seat of power of the legendary King Minos, and the remains of this UNESCO World Heritage site reflect the glory of former times.


    From 1900 to 1931, British archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans supervised the excavation of the palace complex and surrounding area, and you’ll see firsthand some of the treasures he uncovered. There are royal quarters, shrines, a royal villa, workshops, banquet halls and other preserved monuments from the Minoan civilization.


    Continuing on, you will drive to Arolithos, a modern recreation of a traditional Cretan village. Although Arolithos wasn’t inaugurated until 1988, it looks centuries older. Stone buildings, cobbled walkways, arched entries and other architectural touches lend the village an air of antiquity. To add to the ambiance, Cretan artisans such as ironsmiths, potters and weavers can be seen creating wonderful handicrafts. An abundance of antique art objects, gathered throughout Crete, are displayed in Arolithos’ alluring cultural museum.


    Following your museum tour, you will have time for shopping and to enjoy a traditional Cretan lunch and folkloric show before returning to the pier.

    Agia Triada Monastery, Akrotiri & Chania

    La Canea, Creta, Grecia

    Duración 4 horas

    Delve into the history of Crete by visiting a military cemetery, a magnificent monastery known for its olive oil and wine, and Chania’s spectacular Old Town.


    Depart from the pier and drive east to a small plateau that holds a cemetery where more than 1,500 British soldiers were buried after the Battle of Crete in 1941. The cemetery overlooks Souda Bay and is a somber reminder of Crete’s strategic role in World War II.


    Afterwards, you will drive to the Agia Triada Monastery on the Akrotiri peninsula, whose construction began in 1634. Over the centuries, the complex has been expanded and now contains a large church, seminary and vaulted storerooms, all meticulously maintained. The monastery also produces a revered olive oil and several varieties of wine.


    Driving on, you will then visit the tomb of Eleftherios Venizelos, a charismatic political figure who fought for Cretan independence. As Prime Minister, he was profoundly influential in the founding of modern Greece, until his death in 1936. From his modest, unadorned tomb, you will have a magnificent view back to Chania, your next stop.


    On a walking tour of the most historical sections of Old Town, you will gain great insight into Chania’s founding. Many of the Venetian villas and palazzos have been restored, and there is a cathedral dedicated to the Virgin of the Three Martyrs, the patron saint of Chania. You will also browse the bustling agora, where exotic herbs seductively scent the air. Later, you will return to the pier.

Once the capital of Crete, Chania was originally constructed around a Venetian port in what is now the Old Town.

While navigating through the charming labyrinth of streets, you will see elegant Venetian buildings, Turkish fountains, Jewish quarters, Christian churches, mosques and synagogues. You will also have the opportunity to browse the Market Hall. Built in the shape of a cross in 1913 to celebrate Crete’s reunification with Greece, the shopping venue is filled with elaborate stalls overflowing with merchandise as varied as handbags, herbs and sponges.
