Wholeheartedly dedicated to tourism, Hersonissos remains best known for its vibrant nightlife, its bars and clubs attracting partygoers from around the world. This ancient port town once served as an important episcopal city for early Christians, the names of its bishops appearing in documents dated to the 5th century CE. Today, Hersonissos enjoys a reputation as one of Crete's hippest tourist resorts, its seaside streets lined with trendy shops and restaurants. Despite its modern face, the town and the surrounding area contain numerous ancient ruins--reminders of the island's Roman and Byzantine rulers. Escape the big crowds by visiting the archaeological sites located along the coastline just a short drive east of the city. Find what you're looking for from your Hersonissos holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Greece road trip planner.
