    DISCOVER THE CHARM OF HERAKLION / KRETE WITH VOLOTEA

    Greece’s biggest island (260km long with over 1000km of coastline), Crete, combines wild rugged mountains, dramatic gorges, and long golden beaches disappearing into a warm turquoise sea. With its sunny climate and fertile valleys, its rich soils produce harvests of olives, grapes, avocados and bananas. The Minoans, Europe’s earliest-known advanced civilisation, were the first to recognise Heraklion’s wealth and beauty, when they built the magnificent Knossos Palace here some 4000 years ago. The locals are fiercely proud of their identity and renowned for their hospitality, and the island appeals to lovers of wild unspoilt nature, archaeology, art and architecture.
