Crete in 6 days/5 nights. Good Itinerary to see entire island?

Jump to last reply

I'll be traveling to Crete at the end of May. We are doing a few days in Athens and then 6 days and 5 nights in Crete. We are flying into Heraklion in the AM. We are leaving from the other side of the island in the evening from the Chania airport. We will have a car so we can get around the island. We'd like to see as much as we can during our stay there. Here are a few things we'd like to see.

-Knossos
-Samaria Gorge (we'd like to do the 12 hour hike)
-Heraklion Archeological Museum
-Chania Old Towne & Harbor
-Agios Nikolaos
-Spinalonga Island
-Loutro

I cannot find a suggested Itinerary for this amount of time. I was thinking 2 nights on the east side of the island (near Heraklion), 1 night in Rethymnon, and 2 nights in Chania. Or possibly 1 night near Heraklion and 1 night in Rethymnon, and 3 in Chania.

Is this a good plan? I'd love some suggestions. Thank you!
