Ancient and modern. Minoan and Venetian. The largest city in Crete, full of life, Heraklion, is a unique destination with its venetian port, its fortresses, its archeological museum and so many antiquates to see. From there you can discover the entire area around Heraklion that is full of little or big gems. The heart of the Minoan civilization, Knossos, is only 5 km away and you can’t leave the island before seeing it. It is the home of Minotaurus and residence of legendary king Minoas. Swim in its cosmopolitan beaches and then head south to take a dive in the water of the southern Cretan sea that are unlike anything you’ve ever seen. The most famous among them is Matala whose caves hide stories of another era.
