This excursion takes place only on Saturdays. You will have the chance to visit the biggest open – air market of the city and purchase products of high quality at very low prices!
After shopping, you will get to know the city of Heraklion. You can visit several buildings from various periods (Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman), you can admire the historic fortress of Koules at the old harbor, the Venetian walls that surround the old city, a lot of Byzantine churches, the Art Gallery and some of the local museums (archaeological, historical, Christian, natural history etc.). At the Lions’ Square you will have the chance to enjoy your coffee or lunch at one of the city’s restaurants and cafés.
Our interesting excursion to the “Cretaquarium” is also highly recommended. The aquarium is located just a few kilometers away from the east side of Heraklion. There we are going to admire various marine species, from small fish and clams to big sharks and tunas, all indigenous species of the Mediterranean Sea. After this very interesting tour, you will have the opportunity to relax in the café and enjoy the magnificent sea view.
