Crete is the largest island in Greece. There are great mountain ranges, fantastic shopping complexes, popular tourist attractions, sandy beaches and immaculate coastlines. While taking a day out on Crete is absolute fun, it will really be a challenge to explore the island unless you get hold of the best transport facility. While public transport is great doubtlessly, you might not have time flexibility and be left with many attractions uncovered. Now the only option that you are left with is renting a car.
Travelers to Crete get mesmerized and amazed to discover Greeks’ great hospitality apart from breathtaking sites. Hiring a car will also render you the complete authority to explore many hidden treasures, discover things that lie out in remote villages and go off the beaten path. Besides that renting a car comes in handy when you embark upon a journey to the famous places that are nowhere near to your stay. Head to the capital of Crete, Heraklion and visit the famous Minoan ruins. Visit the mazelike hilltop ruin, the Palace of Knossos and other prominent attractions, including Heraklion Archaeological Museum in style.
Crete is blessed with fascinating picnic spots at numerous public and national parks. If you are new on the island and do not know how locals pack their traditional Cretan picnic, why not ask a local then? National parks and beaches certainly make fantastic picnic areas with awe-inspiring natural scenery. Drive up to the mountains; delight in breathtaking vistas before satisfying your hunger eateries at one of the national parks.
Hiring a vehicle is not an unconventional way to explore the best Cretan destinations and places. But yes, it will give you a unique experience that hardly a vacation package can offer you. A car rental is a superb way to explore the unexplored by interacting with locals.
