One of the odd juxtapositions of European beach vacations is the chaotic mix of modernity and antiquity, where you may enjoy the wild and exciting nightlife in one place and then spend the next day learning about the ancient history of human civilizations. Such is the case with well-known locations like the Greek hamlet of Malia, where partygoers from the island of Crete could recover from their hangovers next to aspiring archaeologists eager to explore pre-Homeric monuments. The Malia vacations provide a chance to indulge in modern and historical delights, whether for hedonism or intellectualism.
