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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Sfentoni Cave and Reptisland. Relax by the water at Matala beach and Karavostasi Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Heraklion: Prisma (in Matala) and Palace of Faistos (in Sivas). The adventure continues: explore the ancient world of The Palace of Knossos, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Saint Titus, take an in-depth tour of Heraklion Archaeological Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of St. Minas.
