A beautiful setting, like in a movie, unfolds in the picturesque town of Aghios Nikolaos, in eastern Crete, with neoclassical buildings and the beautiful lake “Voulizmeni” at its center.
It is said that the goddesses Athena and Artemis used to bath at this lake, with the verdant landscape on the one side and the well known multi-photographed bridge on the other, while today it is the main attraction and at the heart of the city’s entertainment with a multitude of cafes, restaurants and nightclubs.
Choose hotels and accomodation with comforts for all the budgets and enjoy swimming at the beautiful beaches of Ammoudi, Kitroplatia, Ammos, Ammoudara and Havania, with their clear blue waters.
In a distance of approximately 10 kilometers you will experience the cosmopolitan air of Elouda, you will walk at the Hersonisos of Kolokitha and you will visit the little island of Spinaloga, or else known as the “island of tears”, since a leper colony used to operate there until 1957.
For further roamings, discover the traditional little villages at Oropedio Lasithiou with its stone-built windmills, monasteries and fragrances of the herbs that grow on the top of the Dictaen Mountain, where Zeus was born and raised according to mythology.
Taste the authentic flavors of Lasithi, such as neropites, anevata kaltsounia, boiled goat and rooster cooked in tomato sauce, as well as fresh fish and seafood at the taverns and the restaurants of the area with the accompaniment of raki and the sounds of the pleasant music of Lasithi.
Explore the beautiful town of Aghios Nikolaos and live an unforgettable experience!
