Hi
I'm going to Greece in November and was wondering if it will be a problem getting to Crete. I hear some things close down after October.
Looking forward to hearing back . Thanks

Ferries from Piraeus to Crete run all year round so you shouldn't have any problems. There might be flights from Athens to Crete too.
Now is the time for drinking, now the time to beat the earth with unfettered foot.

Frank,

Yes you can get to Crete from mainland Greece all year round by ferry & plane. You can fly from Athens or Thessaloniki all year round to Heraklion.
Most of the tourist resorts start closing down from around the middle of October. There are no tourist resorts that remain open all year round. You will find some accommodation that is open all year, particularly in the main towns. The main bus routes that serve the towns & vilages run all year round with little difference between summer & winter timetables. Car hire is also available all year round.

Ros.

.....and, it is a fantastic time of year for walking and if your path takes you past a Raki still you will probably be invited to taste a drop whilst it is warm :)


Take clothes for all weathers, we have been on the beach for a picnic lunch and swim on 6th November and then the next year we were walking in the hills through snow.
