Free time allows you to either visit the Archaeological museum or to enjoy a nice stroll, shopping or a lunch at one of the local taverns in town.

Parts of the ancient Palace have been excavated and reconstructed by the British archaeologist, Sir Arthur Evans, and today one can get a clear understanding of the function of the Palace and its complicated and mystical Labyrinth.

Heraklion is a city of contrasts, where the combination of ancient history and cosmopolitan modern life create a charming mix. Explore the city-center, take a strol through the town and don’t miss the highlights such as the market-street, the Agios Minas church, the Lion square, the Loggia, the Agios Titus church and the Fortress next to the port.
