an unforgettable 12 days on the island of Crete, home to the famous
Mediterranean Diet thanks to the island’s rich soil and warm climate, and
cradle of Western Civilization thanks to the ingenuity of the Minoan
Civilization; learning about their 9000 year history, their culture and food -
this tour is accompanied by Francesca Muir - she lived here for a number of years
The perfect trip for painters, photographers, artists and writers and those interested in the anthropology of food – it’s so inspiring and there’s so much to see you’ll want to go back
Think crystal clear azure seas; breathtaking views; a Minoan feast (cooked as the Minoans cooked 2500 years ago); mountain villages; traditional lace makers, boot makers and shepherds; a trip to the last leper island in Europe; a private tour of the Palace of Knossos; cooking Cretan food the traditional way as well as stunning shopping – jewellery; leather goods; olive products; pottery and clothes.
