Heraklion Guide

The Greek city of Heraklion is the capital and largest city on the island of Crete. A popular visitor attraction near the city is Knossos, which is around 5 km from Heraklion. This important archaeological site was the Palace of King Minos and home to the Minotaur, if legend is to be believed. The palace was built over the remains of a former Neolithic settlement in around 1900 BC.

An important attraction in the city itself is the Archaeological Museum which can be found on one corner of the central Eleftherias Square, in a converted power station. The museum collects and displays many artefacts from Knossos, Archanes, Phaestos, Zakros and many other important archaeological sites on the island. The museum's collection spans several thousand years and includes the Phaestos disc, classic Hellenic and Roman sculptures, frescos, jewellery, wall paintings and pottery.

Visitors to Heraklion can take a ferry from the port, which is important for both passenger services and cargo, to destinations including Santorini, Ios, Paros, Mykonos and Rhodes. There are also daily sailings to the mainland port of Piraeus.

Katapola Guide

Amorgos is a Greek island that is part of the Cyclades group of islands and is the closest island to the Dodecanese island group. Due to Amorgos' position opposite the ancient beaches of Ionian towns such as Militos, Alikarnassos and Ephesos, it became one of the first places from which the Ionians passed through to the Cyclades Islands and onto the Greek mainland. A popular attraction on the island is the monastery of Panagia Hozoviotissa and is located on the cliffs to the north east of Chora. The monastery was constructed in the early part of the second millennium in order to protect a religious icon that dates back to 812, and is on display inside the monastery.

The island's main harbour is located at Katapola and is also home to the famous church of Katapoliani that was built on the site of an ancient temple that was dedicated to Apollo. From the port there are regular ferry connections to the mainland port of Piraeus with a crossing time of between 7 and 9 hours by conventional ferry, and 4 - 5 hours by high speed ferry. The island also has ferry services to the rest of the Cyclades, the Dodecanese islands and with the island of Astypalaia.
