We’ll pick you up from the hotel at the arranged time and head to Akrotiri area. First stop at the Venizelos’ Graves area, with the wonderful view of Chania Town and the Old Venetian harbour with the famous lighthouse. If you would like, you can enjoy your breakfast or a refreshment at the nearby cafes. Then, we continue our trip to Agia Triada Monastery, built in 1634 by Cretan monks. Well preserved, full of history, one of a kind monument includes in its surroundings a museum with monastery exhibits. From there, we drive to Gouverneto Monastery where, after a short walk, you will find the famous Cave of Arkoudospilios (Bear Cave), as the locals call it. The cave is famous for a stalagmite that looks like a crouching bear if you look it from a certain angle. After that small walk, we continue our trip to the beach of Stavros for swimming and relaxing.
If you like hiking, we can drop you off to Gouverneto Monastery whereyou can hike (on your own) through the “Avlaki” path to the Bear Cave, the Monastery of St. John the Hermit and the Katholiko Monastery. Following down the path, you can make the round of Stavros mountain (almost 3-4 hours), eventually ending up at the beach of Stavros for a relaxing swim and a meal. We will pick you up from there at an arranged time to drive you back to the hotel.
