Crete's largest city, Heraklion remains best known for its proximity to a sprawling Bronze Age archaeological site, once the center of a vanished Minoan civilization.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Heraklion: Kazantzakis Museum (in Myrtia), Palace of Faistos (in Sivas) and Neroulakia Farm (in Stironas). The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Heraklion Archaeological Museum, delve into the distant past at The Palace of Knossos, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and get a new perspective on nature at The Natural History Museum of Crete.
