TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Sitia as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Sitia is a port town and a municipality in Lasithi. It lies east of Agios Nikolaos and northeast of Ierapetra.
Sitia port is the most important economic and financial hub of the Lasithi region. Sitia town itself is one of the least touristic parts of Crete. Its history goes back to the Venetian occupation and it was later destroyed and reconstructed by the Turks. For this reason, not many historical sites survived the passing of time. However, the region as a whole still provides some traces and monuments of its early times.
In Sitia, you can do the usual things such as hanging around the long beach in the eastern part of the city or visiting the waterfront in the harbour where you can enjoy your coffee and have some lunch or dinner. Alternatively, you can find yourself lost in the alleys of the old town where you can explore some traditional houses with courtyards and Anatolian gardens, visit the castle of Kazarma or the ruins of a Venetian monastery. Additionally, you can visit the Archaeological Museum where you can find one of the permanent exhibitions of folklore objects dating back to the early 20th and 19th centuries. Finally, a visit to the local produce stalls is a must as you can learn about and purchase some of the finest products in the whole of Crete, among others you can find some world-class wine, olive oil and raki spirit.
Sitia in its core is a residential town and tourism there is a by-product of development, which wasn't really sought after. Here you will meet some of the most delightful and hospitable people of Crete, who are doing their best to keep their hometown at its best and they are very proud of Sitia. This solitary region is also home to a number of monasteries like Toplou, archaeological sites, beaches lined up with palms, sparkling bays and mountainous areas that provide excellent opportunities for some fascinating hiking trails.
There is also a number of traditional villages such as Zou, Ziros, Handras and the abandoned Ethia and the surroundings of Karidi, where you can explore some old buildings and archaeological sites. Moreover, Sitia gave birth to one of the quintessential Greek epic writers, his name was Vitsentzos Kornaros. Kornaros was born in 1553 in Trapezounda in Sitia and he was destined to leave his trademark in Greek literature in 1600 when he composed his magnum opus 'Erotokritos' which to this day remains one of the staple literature legacies of Greece.
Sitia is a true gem, off the beaten track and unaffected by the spoils of mass tourism. You should hurry up, since the construction of an airport in Sitia is finished and things might change rapidly.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Georgioupolis as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Georgioupoli is a resort village 38 km southeast of Chania, in West Crete. The area around Georgioupolis is Apokoronas, with its picturesque villages and verdant landscape.
Georgioupolis serves as the end point of river Almyros, where its waters meet the sea. A few steps away from the town Almyros forms a lake that hosts an ecosystem of native species of birds and animals. You can spot the lake from the main highway as you approach Georgioupolis from Chania. Upon entering the town, you will be greeted by rows of eucalyptus and cypress trees all the way to the main square, which makes the landscape eerie and picturesque at the same time.
The beaches of Georgioupolis expand all the way eastwards, almost 7km from the village centre. They are sandy and well equipped to host an array of visitors and offer fun activities for both adults and kids. If you prefer a quiet spot you can look for the crescent-shaped beach right in the village. Also, the main square is quite lively and you can patron one of the many tavernas and bars and just sit and watch the world go by.
Just 3km from Georgioupolis visitors can find lake Kournas, one of the few freshwater lakes in the island. The lake is surrounded by the Cretan range of the White Mountains, which are reflected in its water and it used to be home to eels but now is famous for hosting terrapins and being a popular tourist attraction. As you enter the lake you can find plenty of shops and tavernas, as well as on the hillside overlooking Kournas. On the top of the hillside, visitors can enjoy mesmerising views of the lake. Despite the tourist influx in the last few years, the lake still retains its natural beauty and it is a worthwhile destination if you are in the area.
Georgioupolis is ideal for those who seek relaxation and tranquillity in their vacations. It retains the perfect balance between a town and a village, thus whereas you will be away from the hustle and the bustle of the city, you will never feel the isolation of the countryside.
