Discover Heraklion Crete

Here seasons are mixed…Spring, summer and autumn, the weather predisposes you to come and live new experiences during your holidays. An island for everyone…families, young couples, carefree groups of friends as well as intrepid, inquisitive travelers for whom the sea and sun is just the beginning. Whatever type of traveler you are, Crete will reward you. Gastronomy, luxury, hospitality, culture and civilization, action, adventure and, of course, gorgeous exotic beaches. We will take a short trip to one of the numerous experiences you can have…let’s take a tour around the district of Heraklion…

Your Aegean jetliner approaches the international airport of Heraklion banking round over the port of Hersonisos and then hugging the north coastline in a westbound direction. Nearing Heraklion, the Venetian walls can be seen from above creating the impression that time itself is reversing… but once on the ground you realize the city wants for none of the modernity and vitality that characterizes many of its counterparts… excellent food, no end of cafes and bars, festivals, wine exhibitions, and for culture buffs, important sights such as “Koules”, the Roman fortress-prison at the entrance of the port; Agios Titos square with the wonderful church which used to be a mosque until 1920; Loggia, the noblemen’s club during the Venetian occupation, as well as the museum of history and archaeology. In addition, just 5 kilometres outside Heraklion, stands the most imposing and impressive legacy of the Minoan civilization; the labyrinthine palace of Minos, the king of Crete, covering an expanse of 20,000 square metres.
