Akrotiri Peninsula & Monasteries
Private Tour – Chania 8
Our tour begins at the historic site where the tombs of the Venizelos family are located, also well known for the magnificent panoramic view over the whole city of Chania. We leave to touch the roots of Orthodoxy in Crete by visiting the Monastery of the Holy Trinity, a monastery built in the 17th century by the Venetians. The next stop is a literal travel in time as we walk the same paths that the first monks at the Gouverneto Monastery walked 500 years ago. This is a monastery built literally inside a rock! We complete our tour with a dive into the turquoise waters of Loutraki or Marathi beach.
