About Heraklion

Crete’s capital, Heraklion (otherwise known as Iraklio), is a dynamic modern metropolis that features among Greece's top five cities. Chaotic and packed with people, it does not have the architectural beauty of either Rethymno or Hania, but it has an engaging buzz. The energy of the city centre, the stylish boutiques, some excellent restaurants and lively cafés make Heraklion worth a visit

The waterfront is undergoing constant redevelopment, and the introduction of new roads is also making the city more appealing to Heraklion car hire drivers. The Minoan ruins of Knossos draw thousands of visitors each year, and the rural areas further inland offer pastoral scenes of olive trees and vines.
