Heraklion is the largest city of Crete and the island’s capital. Its history properly begins in post-Minoan times. Today, it is a modern, lively town and an important economic centre. It preserves traces of its long history, and the conquerors who passed through.

Natural disasters, the bombings of WW II, regrettable choices of the local authorities of the past (and not so distant past!), as well as the rapid development of the next decades – all have been responsible for the loss of many of the city’s monuments and to a great degree the fabric of the Old Town.

On this guided tour you will dive into Heraklion’s history with stories of its interesting past and visits to its legendary churches, fountains, and monuments.
You will learn the secrets of the Cretan diet by tasting its’ best products at a local market. Our guide will take you through Heraklion’s lesser-known streets, forgotten laneways, and old city walls. You will visit an art collections in unique locations and at last you will use your taste buds and Indulge in local flavours like a meze platter, strong Cretan raki and tsikoudia.
