Heraklion Favorites: 50 reviews and 50 photos
Favorite thing: Do not just limit yourself to just this one city. There is much to be seen on other parts of the island. Give yourself at least 2 days in Chania and an extra one if you plan to hike the Samaria Gorge.
Fondest memory: A German Archeology Professor on sabbatical befriended me and acted as my guide at Knososs and the Archeological Museum. He was able to answer many questions for me and point out the pieces with the most historical significance such as the bee pendant and Phaestos disc.
