Heraklion is the largest city of the island of Crete and an important shipping hub with connections to mainland Greece and many other islands in the Aegean, Dodecanese and Cyclades.
Located in the centre of the northern side of the Island, Heraklion is the main gateway to the Island for tourists and locals.
On the south side of the city are the ruins of the palace of Knossos, which in Minoan times was the largest centre of population on Crete.
