It is the largest island of Greece and the birthplace of the first advanced society on European soil. The island forms an important part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece while preserving its local cultural features. From the sun-drenched beaches in the north to the rugged gorges, the way the Cretan landscape unfolds is undeniably unique.
Crete has two airports, one in Heraklion and another in Chania, which offer domestic flights to and from Athens and Thessaloniki. There are also connections between Heraklion and Rhodes, Santorini, Mykonos and Paros. Direct international scheduled and charter flights connect the island with a number of European cities, especially during the tourist season.
With its wonderful climate, unique natural beauty and extensive conference and tourist infrastructure, Crete becomes the ideal destination for any type of congress, summit, business meeting, incentive or product presentation.
In addition to a number of specialized conference centers, there is an enormous choice of venue facilities in major cities and resorts, equipped with the latest sound and light installations, simultaneous translation systems and other amenities.
The traditional Cretan diet is considered one of the healthiest in the world. Its strength lies in the quality and freshness of its ingredients, the use of wild herbs and spices and the purity of the taste. And not to forget the olive oil, Crete’s liquid gold.
Fantastic culinary experiences and delicious treats await you.
