WHY HERAKLION?

Founded in 824 AD by an Arabic Muslim people, Heraklion is home to the world`s only comprehensive collection of Minoan artifacts. It has magnificent fortified walls and several other testimonies to the Venetians` time of power. Heraklion is close to the ruins of the palace of Knossos, which in Minoan times was the biggest center of population on Crete.

Nestling picturesquely among two imposing mountain ranges Ídi (Mt Psiloritis) to the west and Dikti (Lasithiótika mountains) to the east between the prefectures of Rethymno and Lassithi, on the eastern side of Crete, Heraklion is the most popular region of the island and boasts exceptional archaeological treasures, significant coastal settlements, a series of picturesque villages, vast valleys with olive groves and vineyards. It hosts intense nightlife close by in Malia, Hersonissos, Ammoudara and Agia Pelagia, and also many serene areas, particularly on the southern side. A drive around Heraklion will also bring you to traditional villages, medieval castles, Byzantine monasteries and nice beaches to relax. This region combines busy resorts and secluded coves.
