This tour will take you from the heights of the rocky Lassithi plateau to the traditional villages tucked away off the beaten path. We start at the village of Krasi where we will visit the huge 2,400-years-old Writer’s Plane Tree, named so because it was beloved by Nikos Kazantzakis, one of the most famous Greek writers of the 20th century. In the same village we’ll get to see how the Cretans used to wash their clothes in the traditional manner. Next up is Panagia Kera, a 13th century Byzantine monastery where you can find among the gorgeous iconography a depiction of the Catholic St. Francis, who is famous in Crete.

 

Afterwards, the tour will ascend to the unique Lassithi Plateau, a rocky and austere long treasured for the beauty of its scenery. There you can visit the Diktaion Andron, an ancient cave believed to be the mythological birthplace of Zeus.

 

You can have lunch a traditional taverna outside Krasi, at your own expense cost.
