It’s all about the parties at night and relaxing during the day in Crete. Whether you’re a hard-core partier or a history buff, strange things happen on this Greek Island. A sense of excitement takes over you as soon as you book your holiday, leaving you feeling like a 6 year old at Christmas. So come on who can relate to any of these?
