Visitor

In Heraklion, the visitor can discover a wealth of cultural experience, in the newly refurbished Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Heraklion and, among others, the Natural History Museum, exhibitions throughout the year and a summer-long festival of music and arts. History is in the stones of Heraklion, marrying the past with the present, as its most famous area of nightlife is also one of its oldest; the old town around Daedalus and Korai Streets.

Large ‘squares' or platiea abound throughout the city centre, providing centres of activity throughout the day and well into the night, as, particularly in the summer, all of Heraklion takes to the streets when the sun goes down.

An unforgettable experience awaits the visitor today in Heraklion. The range of hotels and guest houses give everyone the possibility to explore this old and new city in all its colours, bringing a famously proud and thrilling city closer to you. Heraklion is for you to discover.
