Heraklion Travel Guide: 302 reviews and 857 photos

My foot entered the territory of this city this september and I felt I must come back one day again. Inspite of the messy streets with tons of people what remains me something as my image of Bangkok I want to be there again. I have seen just some of the places and wish to have more time for all those places I couldn't see.

Some basic info ...

Heraklion is the capital of Crete with about 130 000 inhabitants but when there is a season all tourists make it bigger :) it is the fifth largest town in the all Greece. The city is marked by different influences of Venetians, Saracens and Greeks.

Agios Titos

To hear sparrows in the park with such a nice view >:) simply unforgettable ...
