1. Heraklion: Cretan Cooking Lesson with Lunch in Arolithos
Dear guests, it will be our great pleasure to welcome you to one of the most beautiful sights in Crete, Arolithos Traditional Cretan Village. We will walk around the little streets visiting the premises and the museum where you will see the exhibition of our familial collection of old objects. We will visit the two old houses which will travel us back in time. Later on, we will go to the taverna where we will prepare together the delicious dishes of several recipes which we also consume in our weekly diet. Traditional Cretan cuisine is considered to be one of the healthiest in the world. Here you can learn from us the secrets around each dish and participate hands-on in the process. You can create stuffed vine leaves, stuffed vegetables, pork with wine sauce, lamb with green beans, ntakos, tzatziki, and cheese pies. In case you have special dietary needs or allergies then you shall inform us beforehand to adapt the menu to your demands. You will enjoy the dishes you have prepared. Local wine and mineral water are included. The taverna has a panoramic view over the nearest valley and Heraklion City. You will have in front of you a lovely scenery of vineyards, olive trees, and the holy mountain of Giouchtas. Sounds of animals' bells will come to your ears. Your host and our team will be there to make you feel welcome and offer you a precious experience. In your own free time Arolithos village you may have lunch and relax after such a creative experience in the tavern and the swimming pool.
