Crete has a very rich history that dates back at least 9.000 years. The Minoan period was Europe’s first civilization, with the palace of Knossos as most important excavation. It was a relatively peaceful period and a high developed civilization with art, trade, architecture and infrastructure. But also the Venetian period (13th till 17th century) have left important remains such as Spinalonga, Chania old town, fortress of Rethymnon, city wall of Heraklion and many aqueducts.
Although free camping makes your tour more adventures and it’s allowed at almost all beaches, Crete also has some official camp sites. They offer protected places, some directly near the beach. Besides sanitary facilities most have shadow rich parking spots, a restaurant, laundry or even a swimming pool.
