My husband & I are coming to Crete Sept 13 - 19. We arrive in Heraklion (airport) and were planning on getting ourselves to Ag Nik for 2 nights.
After that we don't know what to do, there are just so many appealing options. We like Kritsa, Elounda, and Sitia as places to visit. Are Kritsa & Elounda day trip kinds of areas? Or do we stay overnight? What about Sitia, is it worth the trip from Ag Nik? How long would you suggest we stay there? Are buses easily available from Ag Nik to Sitia?
Our ferry leaves Crete (going to Ios) at 9:45 am on the 19th. Do we need to stay in Heraklion that night to be near the port?
Does anyone have any other suggestions of things to do in this area? What about Knossos Palace?
Sorry for all the questions, Crete just has so much to offer it's hard to know what to do.
