Heraklion is the capital of Crete and one of the largest cities in Greece. Although the first image of the city is that of a big city, a short walk in the neighborhoods will take you back in time. It offers plenty of entertainment choices and can be a springboard for your excursions in the surrounding areas.

The old district includes nearly all the sites surrounded by fortifications and moat. The city was built in the 9th century AD by Saracen pirates and served as base. The current form of the perimeter fortification is due to the Venetians.
