“Zakros is located in a remote area of eastern Crete, 45km southeast of Sitia. Communication with the Mid East was faster from here during the Minoan Age, thus the Minoans built here the administrative center of Eastern Crete, with an important port. The findings are very rich (sheets of gold, ivory, jewelry, pottery, etc.) and prove the close relationship of the city with the ports of Cyprus, Egypt and the Middle East. The Palace of Zakros was built at the outlet of the imposing Gorge of the Deads and is the fourth largest Minoan palace that has been excavated. The region is full with archaeological treasures, and even the name of the gorge of the Deads is taken after the preminoan graves found on its sides. The site is visitable, although most findings are kept in museums of Heraklion, Sitia and Agios Nikolaos. The palace covers an area of 4.5 acres, while the surrounding settlements covered a total area of 8 acres. The excavations started in 1900 by the British School of Archaeology and continued till 1940, bringing to light many Minoan houses and objects. But he who first discovered the palace in 1961 was Nikolaos Platon, after seeing three golden objects from Zakros from the collection of a doctor. The palace at Zakros is one of the most important archaeological discoveries, considering that it is the only Minoan palace not looted and found with its treasury vault intact!”

“It is an organized winery with great winegrowing and winemaking experience. Located 10 minutes drive west of Sitia town and also 10 minutes drive south of the ancient city of ‘Itanos’ or ‘Ermoupoli’ and the palm forest of ‘Vai’. Guide tour in Greek and English language, in the winemaking area, where we reach the tasting room, which is characterized by stone and wood, in perfect harmony with the local natural beauty. Access to sightseeing and visit to the Toplou Monastery, where we find hagiographies and icons that represent the development of Byzantine iconography with great artistic value over time. There is a museum with rare items and library with historical and religious books, etc.”

“Platanias is located in west Crete, just 11 kilometres west of Chania. Platanias is one of the most popular tourists resorts in Crete and is so close to Agia Marina that they have essentially merged into a single large resort. Of course, we are talking about the Platanias in Chania, not the Platanias in Rethymno. The two places are many kilometres distant but you might be confused by the same name. Platanias and Agia Marina may seem two noisy, bustling places and everything is much more intense, especially if you’ve just come from a less touristy part of Crete. You certainly won’t be bored here! A busy nightlife, bars, restaurants, a large sandy beach and countless hotels along the seafront are the basic features of Platanias, the main tourist resort of Chania Prefecture. Platanias and Agia Marina are near Chania, making it easy to get to if you’re on holidays in west Crete - it’s close to Chania Airport, and you can visit beautiful Chania whenever you feel like it. ”
