Dikteon Cave


Dikteon Cave

Mount Dicte range in East Crete, Crete

One of two caves claiming to be the birthplace of Zeus comes with a steep climb up dusty switchbacks before many steps down a staircase into the cool, damp cave. This hike is best for families with tweens and teens who can handle the climb.

Have some euro dollars or coins on you because the tickets to enter the cave are sold at the very top (kids are free) and no credit cards are accepted up there.
