Sissi is a lovely place, and I concur with many of the other positive reviews of this resort posted on this site. The harbour is exquisite, the restaurants plentiful, and the streets are safe and clean. Of course it\'s expensive, but remember that holiday towns such as this have to cover 12 months\' living costs within a 7-month season, so don\'t be too hard on traders if they try and squeeze and extra Euro out of you!

Public transport is very limited. One bus in the morning at 9am which returns around 5pm. That said, we planned a lot of our trips around that bus service and it worked well. You need to hire a car if you want to travel further afield.
We were very impressed with Sissi and Crete in general; a return visit to the western side is highly likely in the next couple of years.
