Crete is the cradle of the Minoan civilization, whose heart and most important place in terms of archaeological wealth is Knossos. It is worth taking a walk around the city of Heraklion, which is the largest urban center on the island. We recommend a stroll through the charming and typical Cretan streets. You can also visit the monuments from the time of the Venetian occupation, such as the Loggia and the old harbor with the famous fortress of Koules.

What places should I visit in Crete?


In the west of the island, lies the charming town of Chania. Although it was partially destroyed by bombing during World War II, it still attracts crowds of tourists every year with its beauty.

From the port of Souda you can leave in a speedboat to the beautiful beach of Stavros or to Réthymnon.

Agios Nikolaos

On the east of the island is the town of Agios Nikolaos, famous for its numerous beaches. In the center of the town is the curious Vulisméni Lake, known as "bottomless". Of course, this is just a name, but a justified one: the bottom is 64 meters deep. The main marina is located to the south of the city and from there, you can take a nice boat ride to the island of Agioi Pantes.


The largest and most important city of Crete, its historical capital, named after the hero Hercules (Heraklion). During your cruise to Crete, don't hesitate to make a stop ashore to see the main monuments:
