Main Attractions

Discover the remnants of Minoan culture at the Palace of Knossos. The legendary site is said to be the seat of King Minos, and is featured in a number of myths, including that of the Minotaur. The Heraklion Archaeological Museum has an extensive collection of artefacts, covering multiple layers of civilisation on Crete. Rethymno is popular with many visitors due to its picturesque buildings and unspoilt coastline. Explore the narrow streets and discover the town’s charming mix of Venetian and Ottoman architecture. The coastal village of Agia Roumeli has a nice stretch of beach, and serves as a gateway to the spectacular Samaria Gorge and National Park.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

The bustling Central Market on Meidani in Heraklion is a great place to shop with the locals. The maze of stalls and shops here stock a variety of herbs and spices, fresh meat, inexpensive clothes and other goods. Herb’s Garden is located on top of the hip Lato Boutique Hotel in Heraklion and provides fresh, flavourful local food. Pick up colourful woven rugs and blankets from Top Hanas in Chania. The items here are all woven by locals in the villages nearby. Chania’s Agora covered market has many stalls selling all the ingredients for a tasty Greek feast, as well as a number of cafes offering regional dishes. The Well of the Turk is housed in an inviting building in the old Turkish part of Chania, and serves up hearty, Levantine-influenced dishes. Head to the Fortezza bar in Chania’s old fortifications for an after-dinner drink accompanied by marvellous views across the water.
