Heraklion with its port and huge territory is the gateway city of the largest and most tourist island in Greece. It has everything: history, beaches, nature, and gastronomy. And most importantly, the atmosphere of Mediterranean impromptness with only one plan — relaxation.
How to get
The airport is located 5 km from the city, so you will have at least two transport alternatives:
— Bus. 35 minutes and about €0.75*. The stops are located outside the airport, so you have to go to the stop near the ring road. Look for buses №1 or №78 there. But keep in mind that they run only until 9 pm.
— Taxi. 10 minutes on the way and about €20*.
What to see
The city is literally packed with historical attractions, so we decided to give a very indicative, but important list of the main must-see places:
— The palace of Knossos
— The church of Saint Titus
— Agios Minas Cathedral
— Venetian fortress «Kules»
— Venetian Loggia
— Historical Museum of Crete
— Museum of St. Catherine
— Nikos Kazantzakis Museum
— The Morosini Fountain
Cheese, olives and bread. You will find these foods in the daily diet of any local. And also snails with rosemary, spanakopita and dakos.
The average bill in a local tavern will be about €25-30* for two.
Restaurants and eminent establishments put a higher price, therefore, dinner here will cost about €40* per person.
Explore (things to see out of the city)
— Rethymno. A very picturesque city from the Venetian period. A few kilometers away is Lake Kournas, the largest freshwater lake on the island. On the lake you can rent a paddleboat and go to find some turtles. The lake is small, but it gets deeper from north to south. Lots of turtles live near the southern coast, which is the best place to feed and photograph them.
— Authentic village of Panormo.
— Elafonisi or pink sand beach.
— Mata beach. It is also called Hippie Beach. They say that in the 60s of the last century, at the height of rock and roll popularity, hippies came here, gouged caves in the rocks and lived there. The water here is clear and turquoise, with beautiful limestone rocks above the beach.
Apartments in the city center cost approximately €26* per night. But you will have your own balcony, clean sheets and plenty of space.
If you want to live closer to the sea, you will have to pay about €35* per night.
A hotel room with breakfast and sea view will cost at least €69*.

We at SkyUp want your trip to be comfortable and beautiful, and that you completely relax, forget about any worries and set out to relax already in the cabin.
SkyInterior on our sides SkyUp is one of the reasons why it is so pleasant and comfortable to fly with us. This is an integrated approach to the design of the aircraft cabin, which is based on the principles of ergonomics, rationalism and, of course, comfort.
The main and really impressive effect, which is noted by absolutely everything - is the multi-colored interior lighting, which is selected depending on the phase of flight. The colors change very smoothly within a few minutes and create an inconspicuous calming and relaxing effect during the flight.
In the night phase of the flight, the light is turned off; for comfort, only the pleasant blue Sky Skylight remains, which somewhat resembles the light of the moon. At dawn, when the time to wake up, the color of the backlight changes to orange-pink - the color of the rising sun.
SkyUp offers to enjoy the comfort of modern lounges and feel the incredible emotions during the flight. After all, the journey must begin beautifully, do you agree?
