About Heraklion

Heraklion to many folk is the airport they fly into to get to Crete. It's a bit more - its also the capital of Crete and is a bustling port town busy with day trip cruise during the summer months. As you'd expect from a  capital, its very busy, we wouldn't recommend driving around here - take a cab. There are many, bars, restaurants, shops, clubs and sites to see ih Heraklion.
