Crete for 3 weeks....but where?!

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are fortunate enough to have 3 weeks to spend in Crete this coming summer; woot!

Our main interests are; 1) Seeing historical sites; 2) Enjoying charming towns and good tavernas; and 3) Seeing the ocean.

That said, we are at a quandary regarding where to stay. We do NOT want to move around every few days, so have come up with a few options:
1) Spend 1 week in Sitia, seeing the eastern part of the island; Spend 1 week in Rethymno; Spend 1 week in Chania....and of course, a couple nights Iraklion to fly in and out and see Knossos.

2) Spend 1.5 weeks in Rethymno; and 1.5 weeks in Chania

3) Spend 1.5 weeks in Chania OR Rethymno; spend 1.5 weeks somewhere in the south.
So.... what does everybody think?

In advance, many thanks : )
