This is a cute little train that gives you a good overview of the area. Make sure to get off at old Hersonissos for a bite to eat in one of the restaurants in the square our buy mementos in one of the unique shops.

What a wonderful way to spend your morning or afternoon, leisurely trip up the mountains to see some amazing stuff! 1400yr old monastery, 2000yr old tree, old villages & more. Would highly recommend this to anyone in Crete.
