Heraklion

— 2 nights
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.
Bring the kids along to The Palace of Knossos and Cretaquarium - Thalassocosmos. Get out of town with these interesting Heraklion side-trips: Matala beach (in Matala), Palace of Faistos (in Sivas) and Agia Marina Donkey Rescue Sanctuary (in Mires). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Heraklion Archaeological Museum, get a new perspective on nature at The Natural History Museum of Crete, look for gifts at Nerium Oleander, and step into the grandiose world of Castello del Molo (Koules).
