Hello everyone and thank you in advance for reading,
My husband and I will be traveling to Crete for my birthday at the end of May and I am trying to plan our trip. Since we plan on having a relaxing, but educational vacation (beaches for a few days, then some historical sights for a few days) I would like to know if we should hire a car to get around Crete, or if the bus system is a good option. We will be arriving in Chania and hopefully staying near a beach.
Is it worthwhile to hire a car for the week we are here, or is it possible to use the buses to get around the island (to the best beaches, the most interesting historical sights, etc.)?
Thank you everyone and I welcome all advice!
