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.

Tinos Guide

The Greek island of Tinos is located in the north of the Cyclades group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea. It is a perfect island destination for a relaxing family vacation where its beaches are sandy, with calm waters, and are surrounded by a good selection of tourist facilities and accommodation. The island's most traditional villages are located inland and are famous for their picturesque architecture and charm. The island's most characteristic village, with its long tradition of marble carving, is the village of Pyrgos. Tinos has a special place in the hearts of Greeks as it is the home of the Church of Panagia, which is considered to be the protector of the country, and contains a miraculous icon inside. The church receives thousands of pilgrims all year round, particularly on the 15th of August.

Tinos is connected by boat to the ports of Piraeus and Rafina and also to the islands of Andros, Syros and Mykonos, and to almost all of the Cycladic islands.
