On the outskirts of Chersonissos there is a nice open air museum called Lychonstatis. Here you can learn how people used to live in Crete. If you are more interested in wildlife, we can recommend the Aquaworld Aquarium. Quite inconspicuous from the outside, inside it exceeds all expectations. Cordial owners, who have an answer to every question, present their aquarium and terrarium. Here you really learn everything about the local fauna.
If you want to escape the hustle and bustle and the tourist crowds in the city, we advise you to drive with your rental car to the mountain village of Koutouloufari. There you will find original houses, narrow streets, nice taverns and have a wonderful view of Chersonissos. Also in the two villages Piskopiano and Ano Hersonissos you will still find the original peace and serenity of Greece.
A rental car in Chersonissos will allow you to discover different facets of Greece and the island of Crete. We wish you a good trip!
