What you’re going to do
Take your cue from Zorba the Greek and re-ignite your lust for life on this fabulous sunset tour and wine tasting. On the big screen, Zorba lives life to the fullest and that’s what we will do as we explore the beautiful Akrotiri peninsula.
After collecting you from your hotel, we will drive out of the city, through traditional villages and tree-lined country roads. Soon the scenery will turn almost biblical, all barren and rocky terrain, wild olive trees and wandering sheep as we approach our first stop.
The stunning Moni Gouverneto or Monastery of Gouverneto is one of the oldest monasteries in Crete, sitting high on a clifftop. Built in 1537, the buildings boast a pretty Venetian-style façade and incredible views across the Aegean Sea.
After admiring another breathtaking vista (there will be lots on this tour!) we will go for a short but dramatic hike down a rocky paved path to Αrkoudospilios, meaning the ‘Bear Cave.’ But don’t be afraid! The only bear in this cave is a natural rock formation but the myths and tales that inhabit it will have you questioning reality.
After soaking up more amazing views, we’ll head back to our car and visit one of the richest and most beautiful monasteries in Greece, Agia Triada of Tzagarolon.
The monastery, whose name means "Holy Trinity," was built in the 17th century and is well known for the knock-out wines and olive oil it produces, with a high sense of responsibility and respect for the traditional economy and local ecology.
Amongst the Renaissance architecture, we will sample five different organic wines guided by a dedicated sommelier. Our special tasting will also include olive oil made on the estate, accompanied by feta cheese, olives and rusks.
Once the sun starts setting over this magical place, we will head over to Stavros beach, where Zorba taught cinema audiences how to dance. With a glass of raki in your hand and mouth-watering mezedes (local tapas) to feast on, we will finish our day the way he would have wanted it, happily drunk on the simple pleasures in life.
