A view of some of the varied terrains on the Greek island of Crete

Crete is Greek’s largest island. On Crete are large expanses of sandy beaches, but also tall mountain ranges. The island’s love for gastronomy is a benefit for all culinarians, but there is also a depth of history across the entirety of the island. On southern Crete, on Frangokastello Beach, travelers can find a Venetian castle. On northern Crete lies Knossos, an archaeological site from the Bronze Age with a wealth of Minoan artifacts; the city was once thought to be Europe’s oldest. Photo from Dawid Zawila.
