Self Guided Holidays on Crete
Here at We Love Crete we have had many questions from independent travellers about what to do in a short time in the west or east of the island... these ebooks have evolved out of the questions from travellers who love Crete....
An independent exploration through the fascinating island of Crete is made easier by our very own travel ebooks, with the following routes:
5 Days in the West of Crete – by Car or Motorcycle
5 Days in the East of Crete – by Car or Motorcycle
Of course it is preferable to spend more time on the island, so you can bundle the two guides together and spend at least 10 Days exploring Crete...
Either of the short itineraries can be expanded; each guide has suggestions of alternative routes and extra activities.
