Spili Tours

Spili
A cluster of traditional houses and cobblestone lanes nestled in the foothills of the Psiloritis mountains, there’s no denying Spili’s photogenic appeal and the tranquil mountain village has long made a popular addition to tour itineraries. Small enough to explore on foot, Spili’s top landmark is its main square, where a grand Venetian fountain takes center stage, featuring 25 lionheads spouting fresh water sourced from the nearby Mt Ida, Crete’s highest mountain.

Once you’ve explored Spili’s three historic churches and shopped for souvenirs at its many small handicraft and artisan shops, be sure to explore the surrounding countryside, renowned for its tranquil olive gloves, lush greenery and colorful fields of wildflowers that bloom in the spring and summer months.
