Crete has something for everyone. It is the ideal place for nature wanderers, sports enthusiasts, luxury fans and gastronomy lovers. Its unique climate and sunny weather all year round make the island the best destination for families, groups of friends or honeymooners.

The award-winning traditional village of Archanes and the museum of the famous philosopher and writer Nikos Kazantzakis are must-see places when visiting Heraklion.
