Welcome to the beautiful island of Crete, a precious treasure glistening in the Mediterranean Sea, the home to the ancient Minoans, with amazing deep blue beaches, rough mountains, fascinating and busy towns, traditional villages, sweet wine, olive oil and sun. One of the best ways to experience the beauty and the extravagance of Crete is to drive around by car. We give you some useful tips to make your stay more comfortable.
