Tour of Arkadi, Eleftherna and Margarites
Spend your morning deep into the archaeology and culture of the beautiful island of Crete. After being picked up from your hotel, your first stop will be the Monastery of Arkadi which played a big part in the Cretan Resistance and in 16th has been converted into a place for science and art. After this first visit, you'll continue on to the museum of Eleftherna from where you'll get to enjoy a stunning view over the excavated ancient city-state. The museum – Homer in Crete – holds artefacts belonging to a span of time of over three and a half millennia. Your last stop will be in Margarites, located in the picturesque rolling green hills of Rethymno. The village is well known for its pottery makers whose century-old ceramic tradition has made Margarites the most important pottery center of Crete.
