What to do while in Heraklion

If you love history and want to know more about the area, visit the Heraklion Archaeological Museum. The museum houses an impressive collection of Minoan art and traces the rich history of this part of the world. Rocca a Mare Fortress is a stunning fort that sits in the water off the coast. Not only is there a great history lesson to be had visiting this fortress, the views of the water and the city that surrounds you are breathtaking.
Winter in Heraklion

Winter in Heraklion

Though winter often invokes thoughts of freezing temperatures and driving snow, winter in Greece is much milder. While you are in Heraklion a trip to the local Christmas markets is a great place to find holiday gifts. When you stroll down the primary shopping street, 25th August, you are bound to find multiple artisanal coffee shops that offer patio seating to sip your coffee. Another great winter activity is to take a Cretan cooking class adjacent to the Museum of Cretan Folk Art.

Thanks again for your excellent service and staying open past 1am the night of the 15th/16th October 2022 when the Airport was closed due to flooding. The car (booked directly via sixt.de) was good (as always) and no problems when returning it.

I arrived at the service counter in quite some panic as i lost my wallet including drivers license and credit cards on the plane. In this situation the service team was sincerely empathetic and thoughtfully helped to resolve my situation so my wife could still rent the car, which I relied on heavily as we stayed in a very remote location hours away from the airport. Also the refunding of the deposit with debit card upon return worked flawlessly. Thanks for such a helpful service and the very nice car.

Had a mix-up with our car booking with another company which kinda left us stranded at the airport. Mariana at the Sixt desk in the airport did everything she could to help us out and get us on the road with as little fuss as possible. She was an absolute star. Furthermore, for one reason or another, this is the third time Sixt has offered us incredible service like this. It's not a once off and the company should really be proud of their staff and everything they do. We are full blown fans now and will never hire from another. Just unbeatable.

GREAT customer attention, polite and helpful. Get rid of those Nissan Micra though, slower than a turtle and swallows gasoline like a drunk swallows beer.

Chose them over all the scamers! I initially reserved a car at Abbycar seemed decent, but they wanted to scam me (their zero excess meant 450€… not exactly zero). So I walked over to Sixt, (I rent from them normally when I travel) they gave me a fair deal with full insurance, a decent car without reservarion. The service was also nice and friendly. So chose them over anyone else at the airport!
