Crete, barefoot or patent leather?

by timdowd

"Taxi to the Hotel ..."

We have a Greek restaurant in Regensburg where we know the people very well. We used to live 100m away and we were seduced by the smell of cooking three times a week :)
The owner of the restaurant said his brother (who I had met on one of his visits to Germany) was now a taxi driver in Crete and could pick us up from the airport and take us to the hotel.

"What was the name of the town again ...?"

We met at the airport as arranged and I told him where I wanted to go. I had looked in the Internet and found the village Analipsi where the Hotel Danelis was situated. It was about 2 hours away on the south east corner of the island. As we got there no one had heard of Hotel Danelis. We were asked if Makrigialos-Analipsi was correct, I said just Analipsi there was a big laugh "you mean Analipsi, Limenas Hersonissou, Heraklio?" this is by the airport. We travelled all the way back and got in justi n time to get the worst room ever. The rest is history.

Can you tell me what the pubs and restaurants and night life are like in Heraklion.We will be staying at the Danelis apartments. Thank you.

Re: Entertainment

by brotherleelove

Same as in any other large city-Busy nightlife and lots of restaurants of every variety. Heraklion is not just a summer tourist destination. And don't forget there's an American naval installation on Crete.

Travel Tips for Crete Island

Agios Nikolaos

by Lilasel

Agios Nikolaos, capital of the Prefecture of Lasithi, is one of the most highly developed tourist towns in Greece.
It lies along the west of the Mirabello bay. The main road axis of the island passes right outside the city limits , connecting it with Iraklion (66 km) to the west, Sitia to the east (70 km) and Ierapetra to the south (36 km).

The sea in Agios Nikolaos is superb and the surrounding area of the city is noted for its sandy beaches and beautiful bays.
The landmark of the city is a small lake, known as "Voulismeni" that is located in the center of the city, at the foot of the cliffs. Its shape is circular with a diameter of 137m.
According to the mythology, the goddess Athena used to take her bath in this lake. The depth of the lake is 64 m and was connected to the sea only recently, with a canal opened at 1870. There are wonderful places here that were discovered, long before the area became a tourist resort, by charismatic people mainly by cinematographers like Walt Disney and Jules Dessain. Films like "Moon Spinners", "Celui qui doit mourir", the most recent "Beware of the Greeks", but also the TV series such as BBC's "Who pays the ferryman" are typical since the wider area of Agios Nikolaos is clearly presented in them.

Fresh Fish

by Balam

Fresh fish in Crete has become rare and quite expensive. Common fish you will find at restaurants are: red mullet, sea bream, red snapper, swordfish and tuna. Octopus, squids, shrimps and mussels are also easy to find and they taste great. Fish like Sand-Smelt or Silverside is quite cheap and tasty, although its taste is described as "fishy" by people who are not used to Mediterranean fish

Phourmi - the Minoan cemetery

by wroclawiak

Visiting Knossoss don't hesitate to visit the Minoan cemetery in Phourmi because
the Minoan cemetery at Phourni is one of the most important sites in Crete and certainly the most important Minoan cemetery to be uncovered to date. Its importance is largely due to the fact that it remained in use for over 1,000 years from around 2400 BCE to about 1200 BCE when the Minoan period was all but over.

The cementery is closed for the visitors. If you want to visit it you have to climb the fence. There were no dogs or guards at the time I visited it.

If you want to be more informed visit the web site below.

How to get there:
Take the bus from Heraklio or Knossoss to Archanes. In Archanes ask the locals for the way. The cemetery lies on a hill. The way up is easy.

around by feet..........

by chancay

walk around from one beach to the other or a bit away from the sea through the old streets and have a look for homemade "Raki", this typical beverage of Crete, a liquor made out of wine...delicious after a good fish meal...and in a lot of other moments...but don´t bring it back home, you need the whole ambience, at home it doesn´t taste same.
