Crete’s western corner offers up some fantastic history and scenery; and this day trip is great for taking it all in.
Your first stop is the World War ll Cemetery at Souda Bay. With it’s green lawns edging the bay’s shores, this poignant place is home to over 1,500 graves of British and Commonwealth soldiers who died here during the 1841 Battle of Crete.

After visiting the nearby grave of Crete’s national hero, Eleftherios Venizelos, you’ll then continue on to Chania. Set around an old harbour and threaded with cobbled lanes, it’s one of Crete’s most beautiful harbour towns. After a guided tour, you’ll get the chance for a spot of shopping, perhaps snapping up leather goods along the town’s famous” Leather Lane”.

Next, you’ll drive to Vrisses, where you can sample some of Crete’s home grown wines. And last but not least, you’ll stop at Lake Kournas, Crete’s largest lake. There’s time here to relax over drinks and admire the views before your return journey.
