Your Destination

The largest of the Greek islands, Crete is an enchanting holiday destination, and one of the most popular too. From fine dining and a buzzing nightlife to pristine nature and deep-rooted traditional values, Crete is a land of myths and music, poets and painters. Add one of the world’s top archaeological sites, Knossos, and some of the Mediterranean’s best beaches to the mix for the experience of a lifetime.

The Heraklio region has Crete's most important and fascinating archeological sites. The island's rich & unique cultural heritage comes alive when traipsing through the Minoan palaces of Knossos, Phaestos, Malia & Gortyna. The many treasures unearthed at these sites are in the exceptional collection of the Archaeological Museum in the city of Heraklio—the island's capital.
