We spent half a day in Crete and another half day in Rhodes. The kids loved Crete for its "cave church" and the beach. Crete is the cradle of the ancient Minoan culture, which long predates Moses - 3650-1400 BCE (Minoans) vs 1300 BCE (Moses)! Yeah, that's old.
Traveling with kids, we always make some down-time a priority.
Even if it means missing the ancient Temple of Knossos.
Just look how happy they are! :)
