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 2021 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.
