Holidays and food go together like sun, sea and sand. So what better way to discover Crete than through its food? Visit the charming village of Episkopi, enjoy a feast of local dishes in a mountainside restaurant, then see how kitchen knives are produced in the bazaar.
First up is a visit to Episkopi village for some free time to explore. All whitewashed houses and sleepy lanes, you can sip coffee in a typical taverna or discover her history as the scene of many an ancient battle.
Arrive at a mountainside restaurant and after a warm Cretan welcome, you'll be served up a feast of traditional dishes washed down with wine, tea, coffee or raki – the fiery local spirit. Afterwards, you'll walk it all off at a nearby bazaar to see how kitchen knives are produced.
