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.

Mykonos Guide

The Greek island of Mykonos is one of the Cyclades group of islands and is famous for its unique glamour and typical Greek personality. The island's capital is Mykonos Town, or Hora, and is the hub of the island's tourist industry. Exploring the town, visitors will find its charming old port ferry quay, the bustling Taxi Square, many tavernas located along the shoreline, museums, expensive shops and typical Greek whitewashed houses, especially in the Little Venice quarter. Despite all that Mykonos Town has to offer, perhaps the island's biggest draw for tourists are its many beaches, with golden sand that are generally easy to reach. However, during the peak summer holiday season the beaches can become very busy and generally aren't large enough to provide any sort of seclusion.

There are two ports on the island. The old Mykonos Harbour is where all passenger ferries arrive and the New Port of Tourlos which is mostly used by cruise ships. Ferries from Mykonos depart to Piraeus and Rafina on the Greek mainland and to the other Cyclades islands, the Dodecanese islands and to Crete. Conventional and high speed ferries operate to and from the island.
