Heraklion is the 4rth largest city in Greece and it is also the capital of Crete(which is the largest island in Greece).
Heraklion has an airport and charter flights come directly from abroad during the summer. The airport is named after the famous writer Nikos Kazantzakis. The ruins of Knossos are nearby and also Hersonisos.
To truly experience Heraklion and its surroundings we recommend to you to hire a car. Our representatives can deliver the car to the airport, harbor or your hotel as well.
