Walk on the bridge hanging over the formidable gorge, where at every step shaking the wooden planks, and the height can make you feel a dizzy.
The villages of Agios Ioannis and Aradena connect with the rest of Crete with Vardinogiannis bridge hanging over Aradena Gorge about 140 meters deep. It was built at the end of the last century and now this bridge is very popular among those who love to tickle their nerves.
The Vardinogiannis bridge is very narrow and it can drive only one car. Bungee lovers jump into the gap of the gorge from over the bridge.

Stop in the middle of the bridge and look down - the height is breathtaking!
