Full description
Your 7-hour tour in the Apokoronas region begins with a visit to the scenic village of Apokoronas and its museum. Featuring 7 rooms filled with Cretan history, the museum provides a great overview to the ancient way of life. Learn how the locals used to live, admire traditional Cretan homes and see the old tools that were used in daily work.

Next you’ll enjoy a cup of coffee or Cretan malotira tea at a historical site from the Cretan revolution, where a river crosses the square and runs through the village. Sitting beside the crystal-clear waters of the river, you’ll have a scenic view of the high, tree-covered plateau.

Head to the foothills of the White Mountains to the local winery. Meet the specialists of the award-winning Romeiko Winery, see how their wines are produced, and enjoy a tasting. Also, you’ll have the opportunity to taste other wine varieties, such as Vidiano, Vilana, Malvazia and Kotsifali.

The winery boasts stunning views of the White Mountains and there are herb gardens, an art gallery and a museum of traditional Cretan exhibits on site.

Moving underground you’ll visit a wine cellar inside a cave with rocks covering the cylinder bottles.

Your final stop on the tour will be at Emprosneros, the cradle of the Cretan revolution against the Ottomans. Admire the ruins of the Alidakis Tower and then enjoy a traditional Cretan lunch at a local tavern.
