About the Harbor in Crete's CapitalHeraklion's capital is a vibrant and fun place. For tourists, this is a reminder of the mystical Greece much more than the actual city. There is a Victorian Fortress filled with small stores, fisherman and fishing boats, and the pier is a great place for a walk at night.
For many years the harbor in Heraklion has been the center of town for culinary delights. There are a lot of great tavernas grouped here, bars, cafes, and different attractions. From this island it is possible to sail to the Cyclades Islands and to the Port of Piraeus.
As a favorite place for culinary enthusiasts, there are many great restaurants here. These restaurants specialize in seafood dishes. These are considered the most popular restaurants that can be found in Heraklion.
Heraklion Port is more than enough for the local population. There are also places with souvlaki gyros, and some of the best local baked goods in Greece.
