Things to do in Crete - Aptera Ruins

Aptera is a fanstastic find, although occupied continuously since  fourteenth century BC, it is Roman ruins that currently remain, including a recently excavated Ampitheatre.   It is free to get in, and open Tues-Sun from 8am-3pm.
I saw it last October when it was very open, but this April, after a rainy Winter, it was very colouful but more difficult to wade through!

Will leave you with some pics :)
