Description

We will start our Heraklion tour by indulging in a bite of bougatsa, the most traditional sweet in the city, and we’ll enjoy it at an historic shop that has been in operation since 1922.

With our taste buds satisfied, we will follow the smell of aromatic Greek coffee to see it roasted the traditional way.

We’ll walk through the open-air market, which locals know as “the old market” or simply “the market” (Agora). Nowadays, in addition to groceries and dairy stalls, you can find many shops selling souvenirs, spices, leather items and accessories, plus many restaurants.

Strolling further into the city, we will explore more modern shopping options. We’ll stop at a one-of-a-kind shop that sells t-shirts, scarves, sarongs/pareo, bags and handmade jewels, all made by Greek craftsmen and inspired by museum artefacts and ancient motifs.

On the same street we will admire artwork-styled souvenirs from Greek designers. Take your time to check out the wide range of exquisite, 100 % Greek products.

Our next stop on your tour honours Crete’s beloved olive tree. You will be able to browse for souvenirs like cosmetics made from olive oil and oil tree wood crafts. After all that shopping - let’s go for a refreshing stop of home-made ice cream.

Last but not least, we will visit a ceramic artisan in his workshop. Inspired by Minoan models mixed with modern abstract art, he creates eco-friendly in front of you.
