Heraklion, city

Category: around Crete

Heraklion is the biggest city and capital of the island of Crete. It has everything you could be looking for to buy, large hospitals, universities, cinemas, port and the only airport of Crete is located just outside the city.

When you arrive in Crete, from Heraklion airport to Hersonissos you dont drive through Heraklion because you are already outside of it so if you want to visit a big city of Crete full of shops that is not 100% touristic you should take the bus or drive with your car to go there (25km). There are many places of interest like the big market, the fish market, the museum and more.There is also another market organized every Saturday that you should not miss. You can take the bus and then ask a taxi to get you to the market on a Saturday. You can also drive to Heraklion and then ask someone where the market is.
