We start with a tour around the city of Heraklion (app. 30 min.) with our first stop at Liberty Square in the centre. From there, you have the opportunity to visit the capital town of Crete. 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 harbour, the Venetian Walls that surround the old city, you can sit at one of the many restaurants 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.

After our visit to Heraklion, we will visit the biggest open-air Market in Pateles where dozens of peddlers offer their merchandise at very good prices.

For those who do not want to visit the Center of Heraklion and the Market… a different option! A different experience at the largest multi-store on the island Jumbo! Upon arrival in Heraklion and around the city, participants will be transferred to the department store with a stay of about 3 hours. Shopping on the endless corridors with thousands of items, toys, decorations, clothing, home etc.

Next Stop at the Cretaquarium. Here you are going to admire various marine species, from small fish and clams to big sharks and tuna, all of which are indigenous to the Mediterranean... After our tour, we can enjoy our coffee in the café of the building before we go back to our hotels.
