Cretan cuisine is some of the best that I’ve ever tried. I don’t visit the island too often, but I do visit mainland Greece. I have two young kids, and the trip to Athens is already enough for them. I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations on Cretan cuisine in Athens or Attiki specifically, but anywhere else on the mainland would do (Corinth for example). I would love to try out some spots. 😊

I'd be interested in knowing this, too - I love Cretan cuisine! Getting to Crete isn't always possible.

There're many Cretan restaurants in Athens. Some I've been to and I liked them: Katsourbos in Pagrati, Romanakia in Agia Paraskevi, Kaplani and Veri Meze in Kaisariani and Raeti in Ampelokipi.

Where can I see live traditional Cretan dancing?

I would love to get a taste of the Cretan culture and see some traditional dancing next time that I'm in Crete. Does anyone have recommendations about where would be a good place to see live dancing? I've seen some tourist oriented places in Athens for dancing online that I am planning to visit as well. Thanks in advance! :)

Great Beaches to Visit on the Island of Crete

Crete has some of the best beaches I have ever seen. I thought I'd share this link I found:


I haven't been to Crete in a while, but the next time I go to Greece, I was thinking of spending a few days here. I have only been to a few of these and of the ones I've been to, Balos is my favorite.

Those of you who have been to Crete, what do you think of this list?

Guided Hikes Down the Samarian Gorge?

I am thinking of putting the Samaria Gorge on my Greek Bucket List but I feel like I need more information. In my research, I can see that one should start at the top, hike down, and then allow some time to explore the village at the end and get something to eat, maybe even sit at the beach. So, this seems like an all day thing? It seems totally doable and I am in decent shape, but I am nervous and need more information.

Are there any guided tours that will take me through the process?

What to do in Hersonissos Crete

Hersonissos is a great town that is located just outside of Heraklion, which is one of the main cities in Crete. The best place to visit is the Roman archeological remains, which have been left since the 7th century by the Roman Empire. The ruins have ancient burial grounds, baths and workshops. I also recommend visiting Lychnostatis Open Air Museum and Labyrinth Park, both are great places to take your family as well.

Fun Things to Do in Crete that Involve the Outdoors?

I already decided to visit the Samaria Gorge. I won't do the whole hike, but rather hike into the gorge from the village.

Now, I am looking for some other experiences to do that involve the outdoors? I know that Crete is so pretty, and I want to spend some time in nature while on the island.
