Vrisses Travel Guide


This appealing old village is famous throughout Crete for its thick, creamy yogurt—best eaten with a large spoonful of honey on top—that is served in the cafés beneath the plane trees at the center of town. Georgioupolis, on the coast about 7 km (4½ miles) due west, is another shady, lovely old town, where the Almiros River flows into the sea. Some of the coast here is undergoing rather unattractive development, but inland walks—including one through a eucalyptus-scented valley that links Vrisses and Georgioupolis—make it easy to get away from the fray.
