Crete's largest city, Heraklion remains best known for its proximity to a sprawling Bronze Age archaeological site, once the center of a vanished Minoan civilization.
Visit The Palace of Knossos and Church and the Museum of St. Aikaterini for their historical value. Museum-lovers will get to explore Heraklion Archaeological Museum and The Natural History Museum of Crete. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Heraklion: Gortyna (in Agioi Deka), Matala (Matala beach, Agio Farago (Gorge of Saints), &more) and Bali (Karavostasi Beach, Old Port Bali, &more). There's lots more to do: learn about winemaking at Domaine Paterianakis- Κτήμα Πατεριανάκη, see the interesting displays at Wooden Museum, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and get engrossed in the history at Ιστορικό Μουσείο Κρήτης - Historical Museum of Crete.
