LOCAL EXPERIENCE - 1/2 DAY
Opa! It’s a Cretan Evening! The Botanical Park offers Cretan food and entertainment by professional Cretan dancers. Walk in the park with beautiful surroundings and plants from all over the world.
Nearly 20 hectares of land welcomes you to the Botanical Park, full of fruit trees, herbs, medicinal and ornamental plants from all over the world in a park different from others. The land’s formation and the region’s microclimate makes it a paradise for hundreds of plants and animals!In the midst of this colorful and vivid landscape stands a burnt olive tree, a memorial and a reference to the fires of 2003, the park’s history and origin. You can choose to walk around the park or to have coffee and admire the magical view in the restaurant.
Dinner will be served at 19:00 consisting of a Buffet of Authentic Cretan Cuisine allowing you to take part in an amazing journey of flavors.
After the traditional Cretan dinner with a variety of main traditional dishes, follows a presentation of Cretan traditional
musical instruments which still exist in the Cretan musical paths. Note that the Cretan Music is considered as the only type of music throughout Greece that remains alive and still continues to evolve from the years when Crete belonged to the Byzantine Empire from the years 1000 AD.
Demonstration/presentation of traditional dances such as sirtaki, sousta, maleviziotis, pentozali etc will be given by
