The island of Crete is one of the most beautiful in the Mediterranean. The main city of the island is Heraklion and it is the key business centre of the island. A major cruise destination, the city is consistently bustling with activity day and night. You can find the usual types of shop in the city if shopping is your passion, but if you look closer, you will find a unique shop here and there that holds a treasure you never would expect.
With beautiful weather all year long, visitors to Heraklion can stay at one of the many hotels the city offers or they can relax in the warm setting of homely Bed & Breakfasts. Self-catering accommodation is also readily available. Plus, the city offers plenty of restaurants for your enjoyment, serving all types of cuisine, but you should make it a point to try at least one Greek dish before going home.
