Agios, as locals love to call their city, is a small town facing the Cretan Sea offering beautiful beaches just minutes from the center, but also fantastic gastronomic experiences, and interesting shopping opportunities. The city’s relaxed vibe makes it a perfect place for a quiet holiday. Just a stone’s thrown away from town, it is possible to discover dozens of picturesque villages that still today maintain the most heartfelt Cretan traditions alive.
