WELCOME TO Heraklion
As Crete's capital, Heraklion offers a wealth of holiday fun, archaeological treasures, fantastic Cretan food, and various beaches.
Embracing both the past and present, Heraklion is one of Crete's most multifaceted seaside cities. The vibrant city of today, with squares and pedestrian walkways, is filled with youthful energy, restaurants, and bars. However, so much of its charm still concentrates around the Old Town and its romantic Venetian harbor.
Several excellent museums are located in Heraklion, the largest aquarium in Europe. Just outside the city limits is the most fascinating ancient treasure of the region (also known as Heraklion). The legendary Minotaur and the labyrinth of Knossos Palace weren't just the centers of Minoan civilization. Sound interesting? Well, let's introduce you to the best of Heraklion.
