Hersonissos

— 4 nights
Wholeheartedly dedicated to tourism, Hersonissos remains best known for its vibrant nightlife, its bars and clubs attracting partygoers from around the world.
Get out of town with these interesting Hersonissos side-trips: Heraklion (Heraklion Archaeological Museum & Castello del Molo (Koules)), Lake Voulismeni (in Agios Nikolaos) and Fortress Spinalonga (in Elounda). There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Aquaworld Aquarium & Reptile Rescue Centre, do a tasting at Winery Stilianou, delve into the distant past at The Palace of Knossos, and look for gifts at Hatzis Leather.

To see other places to visit and tourist information, refer to the Hersonissos online holiday planner.

Great Island
The largest of the Greek islands, Crete offers travelers more than just sun, sea, and sand. Famed for its warm hospitality, outstanding infrastructure, and contrasting landscapes, the island represents one of the world's richest areas in terms of history and culture. Crete burst onto the world scene over 4,000 years ago, when it served as the center of the Minoan civilization, one of Europe's earliest organized societies. Despite the island's wealth of developed beaches, the traces of the mysterious and enchanting Minoan empire remain Crete's top attraction, drawing visitors fromĀ all over the world. The island capital Heraklion provides an ideal base for exploring a renowned Minoan palace complex, the site of Europe's oldest city.
