Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Crete is a major travel destination with two million visitors per year. This guide is the product of a long summer the author spent living in a crumbling Venetian tower, explorer every inch of the island for future travelers. Packed with history, myth and travelogue, this should be an indispensable guide for all travelers to Crete. Included inside are maps and detailed itineraries that cover all the must-see cities, palaces, churches and places of historical and cultural significance on the island.
