Heraklion is the capital of Crete and one of the Mediterranean region’s most fascinating and vibrant cities.
It is full of places to discover. With the current efforts to open up the wonderful mediaeval city centre,
it speaks to us of a past full of history and great events that reflect its location at the crossroads of three continents.

The city is also the commercial and technological centre of the island. It has a strategic geopolitical position
in the south-eastern Mediterranean Sea connecting three continents and many different cultures.

The Port

It offers a wealth of museums, a summer-long arts festival, historical sightseeing, amazing nightlife
and events throughout the year. Whatever the purpose of your visit, your stay in Heraklion will be one to remember.
