From Chania: Villages and Monasteries (private)
A private tour that will give you the absolute feeling of the local life
In this amazing tour, Apokoronas’ villages and the monasteries of Akrotiri will be revealed.
Apokoronas is a very beautiful area of this island and one of the biggest municipalities of Crete, with very beautiful villages and great agricultural production. Also, Akrotiri, another relatively big municipality, has the most beautiful and historical monasteries on this side of the island.
For these reasons, this is an experience that we would definitely recommend to our friends that want to have a real local experience. The villages and the monasteries are the core of the real local man of the past.
The Cretan villages, their culture, and their history will give you a great idea of how the local life is and also what are the must-know facts of Apokoronas area. Additionally, the monasteries of Akrotiri, will give you a great sense of the Greek culture as well, as they have their own unique stories and transition (through civilizations) facts.
As we first pick you up from your accommodation place, we first start by exploring the Monasteries of Akrotiri, as they do have strict opening hours and it is better to be visited before the villages.
In particular, the monasteries that we will explore are Gouverneto and Agia Triada. These two monasteries have long stories behind them and they are both amazing.
Later, we will visit the villages of Apokoronas. Keep in mind that this tour doesn’t include only sightseeing of each village we visit, but also a special tasting of local products and an introduction to them by their producers. As mentioned previously, they are very beautiful and very historical.
In few words, this tour is the absolute blend of the last civilizations. A must-do thing in Chania and Crete. The absolute combination of Monasteries and Villages.
We strongly believe that this mix is unbeatable and we welcome you to an unforgettable lifetime experience that will take your breath away!
