Our children aged 9 and 11 were enthralled and the views from the property were stunning.
After a bit of disappointment to visit Knossos, a 4000 year old site partly rebuilt with concrete, we were delighted to finish the day with this exquisite discovery.

The mill has one of the most striking views of inland Crete, with picturesque olive groves leading up to dramatic cliffs through which the sea is visible on clear days.
Yesterday we had the pleasure to visit Biolea: Explanations about the production process, the essentials about olive oil and a fantastic view as many mentioned here.

A quaint active monastery tucked high in the mountains of Crete, Arkadi provides a respite from the crowded cities where you can learn about the history of this ancient site.
The monastery is an incredible place to visit and we were very impressed with the views, the (sad) history, the fascinating exhibitions and the English labels everywhere.

The gentleman who was manning the site was very informative and helpful, and we really enjoyed walking the tunnels, reading about the history and seeing all of the artifacts.
Afterwards, go to the hotel next door to the church for a long cool drink and admire the panoramic view over the sea and of Platanias from their terrace, and thank your lucky stars you are there on holiday.

When sat on the beach and you feel like going for a quick walk this is amazing as you get fabulous sea views!! Georgiopolis is a fantastic town and the beach snack bar nearest to the church is amazing!!
This little jewel was constucted by the Venetian in the tangled streets of Splanzia quarter; and is very lovely, and you have a nice view; nearby is a minaret, it's a nice contrast.

Agios Titos Church Heraklion
#24 of 262 Sights & Landmarks in Crete
There has been an Orthodox Christian Church on this site for thousands of years, but the current temple was rebuilt by the Ottomans during their occupation of Crete and displays the resultant hallmarks of a mosque.
However, before visiting the museum I suggest leaving the return bus at Elefterias Square, to view Agios Titus church nearby and take lunch at one of the shady tavernas in Kallergon Square, halfway down the pedest...

From there we went on to Drakona which again is a fabulous drive with amazing views and in Drakona we had a fantastic authentic lunch at Dounias.
The drive through is majestic and you can do it in your own car or part in the town of Theriso and take a small tourist tram which gives you a better view of the gorge than from your car.
