Things to do
While Spinalonga and Knossos are the leading places to go and see, Crete tourism is changing rapidly. If you find there is a new attraction, let us know about it. I notice more and more places of interest - such as recreating traditional Cretan houses. More wineries are having tasting sessions, then there are Cretan cookery lessons, bird watching trips, hiking trails, cycling races and eco-tourist happenings, the animal park in Neapolis etc etc. Reviews of current visitor attractions are welcome.
