A different city tour for those who want to experience the island’s everyday life. We start in the famous Heraklion open market, where dozens of peddlers offer their merchandise in very good prices. After our walk in the bazaar, we will have the chance to get to know the city of Heraklion. The Byzantium, the Ottoman Empire, the Venetian Rule have all left their marks on Heraklion. You can admire the imposing fortress of Koules at the harbor, the Venetian walls that surround the old city, you can sit at one of the many restau-rants or coffee shops in the Lions’ Square to enjoy your coffee or your lunch, or if you wish to, you will be able to visit one of the many city museums, the Municipal Library and the Art Gallery or one of the numerous byzantine churches. Grab your cameras and take shots of whatever you like most!

For those who wish to see something different, there is one more destination that you can choose for the rest of the day: the Cretaquarium. Just a few kilometers away from Heraklion, there is a compound that combines research with technology and education with recreation, the marine world of the Mediterranean.

In Cretaquarium we are going to admire various marine species, from small fish and clams to big sharks and tuna, all of which are indigenous of the Mediterranean… After our tour, we can enjoy our coffee in the cafè of the building, looking at the magnificent view of the sea before we go back to our hotels.
