Popping up on the southern edge of the Aegean, the most diverse and largest of the Greek islands: Crete, island of superlatives. From the impressive Lassithi plateau to the mysterious caves of Zeus in the Dikti mountains. Pure culture and a rich past. Grandiose, wild countryside, dreamy bays, pulsing tourist centres very close to primitive villages. Crete - inspiration, creativity and art - where El Greco painted, Kazantzakis wrote and Zorba danced. The island of the proud Cretians fulfils every holiday dream.
