Festos-Matala-Agia Galini

A natural Cretan paradise is waiting for travellers to explore and enjoy

Let's explore the past by visiting Phaistos, the second biggest archaelogical site of the minoan civilisation in the south of Crete. Then we continue our private trip into the past by walking around Matala, a seaside village, which gained popularity during the hippie era in ’60’s and 70’s and finally let's have a cretan taste of the famous drink, raki, in Agia Galini.

In this excursion, first we will have our coffee break in Spili, a village carved in the heart of the mountains.

Then we will reach our main destination, Phaistos, which was one of the most important palatial centres of Minoan civilization, and the most wealthy and powerful city in southern Crete. According to mythology, Phaistos was the seat of king Radamanthis, brother of king Minos. It was also the city that gave birth to the great wise man and soothsayer Epimenidis, one of the seven wise men of the ancient world.

Our next stop will be Matala, a coastal seaside village, which was a hippies residence in the '60's. There we will swim in the crystal clear waters in the beach with the romean caves and have lunch in a seaside local taverna.

Finally we will visit Agia Galini a coastal village, where we will taste the traditional drink of raki (tsikoudia in cretan) in a local place.
