    Visiting of the Local Market

    At the beginning of the tour we will go to the market, where we will have about an hour of free time. This place is located in a residential area of ​​the town and is intended for local residents. Therefore, you can buy here something profitably and without extra charges. At the flea market you can buy everything, because the variety of the goods is really impressive.

    Bus Sightseeing Tour of the Town

    During this sightseeing tour we will be able to visit the most famous and memorable places of the capital of the island. It is impossible to ignore the Palace of Knossos with the history having its roots deep in the ancient times. It is believed that it was here that the mythical Minotaur lived and whom Theseus had defeated.

    You can get acquainted with the collection of artefacts from different periods in the local Archaeological Museum. The most precious and world-famous findings of great value for the history of Greece are collected within a 2-storey building.

    The Lions Square hospitably welcomes the guests of the town. This place is full of life not all day, but also night. The central part of the Square is decorated with Morosini Fountain built in the XVII century. Thanks to Morosini Fountain the problem of water supply for the whole town was resolved. The central part of the pedestal is represented by statues of 4 marble lions with water flowing from their mouths.

    One of the main attractions of the town is Koules Venetian Fortress built over the entrance to the harbour. The 2-floor building has the following features:

    • 26 rooms were built here;
    • External walls are about 9 meters thick;
    • It was possible to enter the Fortress through 3 entrances;
    • Marble reliefs with images of lion with wings were installed above the entrances (symbol of the Venetian Republic). Two reliefs have survived to our days.

    In the central part of Heraklion there is Daidalou Street named after the brilliant mythical master Daedalus. It is completely a pedestrian area along which there are a large number of commercial establishments.

    Visiting of Cretan Oceanarium

    After sightseeing, we will go to the Oceanarium to see the extremely diverse world of sea life. Externally, the building looks like a large ship. Inside of it there are well-equipped cages where the most diverse representatives of the sea life are collected ranging from miniature fish to huge sharks. In total, over 250 species (2500 sea inhabitants) are collected within the Oceanarium. There are observation points near the tanks. There are about fifty such places in total. Anyone can not watch the life of underwater inhabitants, but also take a photo with them the background.
