Heraklion is the largest urban centre in Crete, the capital of the region and a vibrant small metropolis with a great number of attractions. It is easily reached by plane from all over the world, its international airport is first in charter flights, and by boat from Piraeus. At 20 minutes from the center of town, the Palace of Knossos is definitely a major reason to visit this region, followed by the Palace at Faistos. The Heraklion prefecture has many interesting villages such as beautifully restored Archanes, the secluded resort of Matala, the ‘70’s hippie haven, or charming Vori in the Messara valley with its acclaimed Ethnology Museum. On the beach front, Heraklion offers numerous choices like Voidomatis, for those seeking privacy, popular Ammoudara, Kommos beach right next to ancient Faistos and many others, each with its own character and beauty.
