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 find plenty of places to visit near Heraklion: Matala beach (in Matala), Reptisland (in Melidoni) and Cave Hermitage of St. Efthimiou (in Zaros). There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Heraklion Archaeological Museum, meet the residents at Cretaquarium - Thalassocosmos, learn more about the world around you at The Natural History Museum of Crete, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.
