Start with a light Cretan salad, which is made with juicy, locally grown tomatoes, soft cheese from the island's sheep and famous Cretan olive oil, then move on to sumptuous gamopilafo, or "wedding rice," which pairs creamy lemon-butter rice with fall-off-the-bone lamb or goat meat.

Experttips
1 If you need a ride somewhere, using a ridesharing app rather than a taxi can help avoid language difficulties.
2 Crete looks small on the map, but traversing the island from east to west can take hours. Don't travel too far from Heraklion if you have limited time in the area.
