Shopping lovers will jump at the chance to explore a coastal town and hilltop village where the art, clothing, and food of Crete are on colorful display.

Take a scenic drive through rolling countryside to the town of Agios Nikolaos, where tiny boutiques and local vendors exhibit their wares. Stalls bursting with freshly-picked fruits and vegetables and finely-woven garments fill the streets and delight the senses.

Climb by coach to the mountain village of Kritsa, where you will be drawn in by shops selling local handicrafts and art stores that give center stage to Crete’s masters of brush and clay.


Please make your way to the Medical Center of Hersonissos, roughly 40km from the Town Center of Heraklion. An English-speaking escort will accompany you on this shopping tour of Agios Nikolaos and Kritsa.

Take a beautiful coach ride to Agios Nikolaos, an idyllic harbor town nestled among undulating hills. Walk along the main street, where can explore the town’s array of stylish boutiques. You’ll arrive on market day, so the street will be bursting at the seams with colorful stalls displaying clothing and homemade jewelry, in addition to fruits and vegetables, local honey, and fragrant herbs.

Continue to the charming village of Krista, which is built like an amphitheater on a rocky hill. Peruse the local handicraft shops and art stores, pausing from time to time to admire the green hills that slope towards the sea.

The tour will conclude where it began at the Medical Center of Hersonissos.
