Explore the village of Krousonas and engage in activities that will provide an authentic glimpse into daily life. Your first stop will be the St. Irene of Kroussonas Monastery, which was extraordinarily affluent in the 1600s. However, the monastery was abandoned during the Ottoman rule of Greece, left in ruins and not rebuilt until 1940. Following an enlightening tour of the monastery now turned convent, the resident nuns will offer you a homemade sweet. You will next journey through the historic village of Kroussonas, where a stop will be made to savor the local tastes including Tsikoudia, a traditional drink. To become even further immersed in the local culture, you will watch a folkloric dance performance. A traditional Cretan lunch follows at a nearby tavern.


• Delve into local life in Krousonas, a village on the eastern slopes of the Ida Mountains.
• Browse a convent that was an affluent monastery in the 17th century.
• Converse with shopkeepers, watch a folkloric performance and sample traditional foods.


• Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
• Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.
