Embark on a fascinating walking tour of Heraklion! Deemed as the crossroads of civilizations for centuries, Heraklion is one of the most vibrant cities of Greece. Discover the remains of the city's different occupants including the Byzantines, Arabs, Venetians and Turks.

From Eleftherias Square (Freedom Square), continue through off the beaten path leading you to streets and neighborhoods to get a glimpse the city as local's perspective. Wander through the local market, sample some delightful local treats, such as barley rusks, olives and cheese, paired with a freshly brewed traditional coffee, and get a chance to chat with local shop owners.

A great vantage point to see how the walls divide the old city from the new city, take a walk atop Heraklion's great Venetian wall fortifications taking you back in time. Continue along the tomb and monument of Nikos Kazantzakis, the son of Crete, and learn what inspired him to write Zorba.

Walk along the pedestrian street, 25 August, to admire some of Heraklion's notable features including St. Titus Cathedral and the Morosini Fountain in the heart of the city. Head towards the city's hidden alleys and discuss the fascinating history of Heraklion.
