What are the most popular sights of Heraklion and Crete?


Koules, Kreta


Especially if an accommodation has been booked a little outside the bustling metropolis, the traveler quickly returns to the bustling city centre with his hired car. As the largest landmark of Heraklion, "Koules" is the Venetian harbour fortress. It was built in the 16th century and has been enthroned above the harbour of the old town of Heraklion ever since. In summer, the holidaymaker can take part in concerts and open-air events here in the evenings, which can be easily reached by hired car. From here you can also quickly reach the Venetian city wall, which nestles around the old town. After a stroll, the taverns invite you with their typical dishes and meals. As an aperitif the Greeks like to treat themselves to a "raki", the national drink here on Crete. In contrast to the rest of Greece, where people like to drink Ouzo, this aniseed schnapps is called Raki and should only be enjoyed diluted with water. After such a refreshment you are then ready for further sightseeing and the many museums of the city. So it is essential to book a hired car to capture Heraklion and its surroundings

 Venetian Port

In addition to the harbour fortress Koules, the Venetian port of Heraklion must not be forgotten. You can reach the port quickly and comfortably by hired car. But between these handsome boats there are always the small, indigenous fishing boats. Holidaymakers who are self-catering in a holiday apartment should not miss the opportunity to buy freshly caught fish directly from the fishing boat in the harbour. Since the hired car is ideally parked in one of the central car parks during a visit to the metropolis, the route continues on foot along the old city wall to the old town of Heraklion. In a triangle, it stretches for five kilometres around the city, from where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Heraklion and the old houses and squares from all points.
