Transfer from Heraklion Airport Crete

Heraklion, in addition to being Crete’s largest city, is the very first landing point for most visitors and gateway to the rest of the island.

Heraklion is often described as charming, picturesque, distinctively Mediterranean and Greek to the core (largely thanks to the gorgeous waterfront area of the city.)

One-Stop Solution for Everything Related to Transfer Heraklion

Many foreign invaders conquered and ruled the city, but never the proud spirit of the local people. They still, in a typical Greek hospitable manner, go out of their way to help out their many guests.

They will gladly point you out to the best bougatsa (mouthwatering Cretan phyllo pastry) place, coffee shop or a taverna, even when they don’t speak your language.

Heraklion has a lot to offer, but it has one downside.

You’ll notice it as soon as you arrive.

It’s the airport.

Heraklion Airport Transfers

Due to the constant influx of tourists, Heraklion airport can be extremely crowded and hectic -- especially if you are departing the airport and heading to the city.

Palace of Knossos

The no.1 place to visit on Crete, plain and simple.

Unmissable and unthinkable not to see if you love any of the following: art, culture, classic Greece, myths, architecture and history.

Knossos Palace

“Europe’s oldest city”, the ancient heart of Minoan civilization is a short (around seven minutes long) taxi ride from Heraklion and an absolute must-see for all visitors of Crete.

The Palace is one of the oldest structures of the ancient world and the birthplace of the myth of Minotaur - half-man and half-bull living in intricate labyrinth constructed meticulously to hold him in.

Ponder the life of ancient Greeks while you examine the ruins of this, perhaps most significant, settlement from the Bronze Age, dating 1800 years B.C.

Old Town, Loggia and Koules Fortress

The heart of this port city and its historic center, Old Town is leaning on the city Harbour and is incessantly charming and full of life.

If features famous spots, like City Hall (Loggia) -- qualified by many as the most beautiful building in Heraklion

Found on the western pier of Heraklion harbour lies another landmark -- the two-tier Koules Fortress (formerly known as Rocca al Mare), which served to protect the harbour and city (of great strategic importance in the region), but also as a prison for Cretan rebels.

Dating from the Venetian era, the Loggia is considered one of the most elegant architectural monuments of the Venetian period, a representative example of the Palladian style.

Cathedral Agios Minas - Built in the mid 19th century, Agios Minas is one of the largest cathedrals in Greece with a capacity of around 8,000 people.
