According to legend, Cave Of Zeus is one of two possible locations where Zeus, Greek god of sky and thunder, was born. High up on Mount Dicte, the system of caves have a single entrance, which you can reach via a long trek to the top or driving the winding roads up. Inside, admire the large stalactites and stalagmites that have formed over hundreds of years. The antechamber contains the crumbled foundations of an altar and evidence of offerings that were burnt at the altar and destined for the gods. Explore the five chambers, especially the small chamber behind a lake where Zeus was supposedly born. Cave Of Zeus is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.

Big climb to get there, plus car park was full so we had to park further down the hill - more walking !! Get there early if you wan to grab a spot nearest the entrance - or go late. Very busy...

Now they are closed, but open. So no tickets, no lights, no tourists buses. You can visit it free, but I recommend to take a strong light, so you will be able to see cave much better.
If you seek seclusion you will for sure find it here! The tourist attraction seems to have never been finished so the acces to the cave, which isn't really astonishing; more like just a big hole, is for free. The view over this beautiful plateau instead is really nice and you can enjoy cold winds in the hot summertime while looking around and not see a single soul in a 10 mile radius! The road up to the plateau is slowly breaking in pieces but still drivanble with any car.
