  • One of two places claiming to be the birthplace of Zeus. Quite climb up to the entrance but you can take a donkey ride up if you prefer. Great views across the Lasithi plateau before you enter this....  more »
  • Loved the cave. Very, very long uphill walk to get to the cave. You can pay 10 euro to get a donkey ride most (not all) of the way to the cave steps. This must be the equivalent of 30+ sets of stairs, if not more. Well worth the trip if you can handle lots of uphill walking. If you get the donkey ride, a handler walks along with you to manage the donkey. No donkey handling skills needed. An extra 10 euro will get you a ride down the long hill. People moved through the cave very efficiently. There were handrails available about 90% of the way once you hit the downhill cave steps.
  • It's a great cave, a difficult way up to the cave then you have to climb down the stairs to so the cave and climb up again. You can take 2 ways down 1 easy and one the old fashion way, so difficult
