    Nice to think that the Roman graves have become in the years 70 houses hippies ... you can visit, attention; comfortable shoes, don't suffer from Vertigo and okki to where you put the prodi, if you fall you can hurt seriously or even more. Non-existent protectors

    Very interesting to do but climbing is very dangerous and it is well stipulate at your risk! Not excessive price 2 euros and for students from outside the EEA free... This should be for all students but good the price is not exaggerated like everywhere in Crete!

    We have been visiting these caves which are pretty steep! Better go well shod! It is not recommended for children under 10 years old car to climb it is rather the escalation (with the next empty). Once at the top, this gives an overall view of Matala. It is superb!
