Discover Ancient City of Lissos
Description

This tour is a combination of knowledge and relaxing. 

Get ready to learn about Cretan History and Culture through some hiking paths which lead to the most beautiful corner in Crete with the most amazing panoramic view and then relax in a secluded but unique beach.

 

You may not find special signs or advertisements for the archaeological sites of Lissos due to the fact that they are neither organized nor accessible by bus. You will have to walk for about 15 minutes but the landscape is marvelous. A small but impressive gorge, beautiful vegetation combined with sharp rocks end up in the old church of Agios Kirikos with its impressive hagiographies. Then the path continues to a secluded beach (you can go there only by boat). You can swim there if you want but don't waste too much time! You have to explore the ancient ruins which may be hidden behind some bushes and rocks or may be covered with leaves.
