Situated on the north coast, Heraklion is the capital and largest city on the Greek island of Crete. It is a hugely popular travel destination. Fine buildings, culture, delicious food, natural beauty, welcoming people, and vibrant nightlife, are just a handful of the reasons why it is so well visited.

Once the home of Europe’s oldest civilization, the Minoans, who lived on the island between 2700BC  and 1450BC, the city is packed with history and archaeological ruins. But Heraklion perfectly balances its ancient identity and traditional customs with a modern and energetic vibe.
