advice on trip to crete
Posted 04 September 2005 - 05:36 PM
I did a search on the internet to see if I could find a reasonable priced hotel in that area but was not successful :? . I would love any suggestions you could give me.
We have not yet booked our rental car either. Is it better to rent before we leave or on the spot ? Which are the best companies in Crete ?
I would love any suggestions on excursions or things to see leaving from the Ierapetra area as we will have a car.
I am quite scared of driving around crete with road signs in a language we do not understand so hope we have made the right decision.

Get your hire car at the airport, the hire companies have bargains at this time of year.

If you are staying in Ierapetra, you should definitely go to see the archaeological site at Zakros, explore it, and walk the gorge. There are excellent beaches in the vicinity, and at Palaikastro, where there is another interesting site. And you should visit Sitia.
A copy of the Blue Guide to Crete would help you plan and make the most of your trip.
