This is my favorite tour in Crete because you get to see the real Crete, the monasteries, the old villages, Zeus Cave where the king of all the Greek Gods was born.
His mother gave birth there to hide from his father Kronos. We will see the old traditional windmills and the amazing views from an altitude of around 1000 m above sea level.
Then it’s off to Lasithi plateau, the biggest one in Crete.
Driving through the old villages on the Lasithi plateau you feel that you are traveling back in time, like time stopped long ago.
