Last Minute Question about Crete

Jump to last reply

Leaving in a few weeks on a trip to Greece and Turkey. We will be landing at Heraklion in the morning our first day, renting a car and then driving to Rethymnon for the night.

Originally, I had planned on two nights in Rethymnon, two nights in Chiana, and then one night in Heraklion our last night, so we can see Knossos in the morning and then catch an early ferry to Santorini.

However, after reading the forum a bit, I am not sure people are so smitten with Rethymnon and maybe it doesn't justify two nights? Would it be better to stay in a village or in the mountains somewhere en-route to Chiana?

Any suggestion on how to spend our time or must-see sites are welcome as well. Since we have such a short time, I think we will skip Samaria gorge.

Thanx in advance!
