Travel Tips for Heraklion

Agios Titos

by Skipka

Agios Titos situated near nice small park just a five minutes by feet from Morosini's fountain (should we say behind Loggia) was built as a mosque. Of course it is turned to Mecca according Muslim's rules. It was built during the period of Turks on Crete in 1872 but in 1923 ordinated as a Church. Inside you can see golden skull of St Titos the relic of this church. Rich decorations and icons are breathtaking. Don't forget to wear long trousers or skirt and wear something that cover your arms. In other case you will not be able to enter the Church. Platia Agiou Titou

Heraklion airport - Nikos Kazantzakis

by Skipka

Heraklion airport is relatively busy :) because all people who love sun want to be on Crete as fast as possible and there is really busy day, just take-offs and landing :). From the downtown take bus 1 to get to the airport and avoid taking taxi from the airport. As everywhere it is more expensive then from downtown. We landed in the early morning and took taxi from airport to Matala (aprox. 75 km) and is was around 50 Euro. From downtown it is 8 Euro less.
In front of the building of airport u can leave your luggage for a while if you want to see the city and have no accomodation. There is a small duty-free shop :) upstairs and lots of kiosk of course.
Toilets are clean and well equiped. Howgh :)

The finest collection of Minoan artefacts on earth

by etfromnc

If I were only on Crete for a day or two, I would visit Knossos before the Archaeological Museum but I think that the ideal way to get an in-depth (but nevertheless relatively quick) concept of Knossos and the Minoan civilization would be to spend an hour or two in the museum, the rest of the day at Knossos, and then part, or all of the next day back at the museum.
This museum originally opened in 1912 and moved to a larger, more seismically safe facility, in 1937. The building sustained considerable damage during World War II but thanks to the curators at the time the collections were not significantly diminished. The current curators suggest allowing several days to take in all of the collections ranging over five millenia from the Neolithic era to the period of the Greeks and Romans. All told, I may have spent several days there and I still had questions and other things that I wanted to see.
Significant renovations to the building's interior were underway beginning 2006 and I am not cetain whether they have been completed yet but at least part of the museum has been reopened.
All exhibits in the Heraklion Museum come exclusively from archaeological sites within Crete and beginning at the front entrance the exhibits are arranged chronologically beginning with Neolithic era pottery.
As what I recall as one of many reasons that I dearly love Crete, the museum is generally closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

ELOUNDA

by Juliet67

Therefore it is natural that the income of all its inhabitants came from tourism where as same decades ago the income of the people of Elounda was solely derived from fishing and from the salt works where first quality salt was produced.

Modern Elounda is built almost in the same position as the ancient city of Olous. The remaining ruins of Olous are now under the surface of the sea and can be seen sometimes when the sea is calm and clear.

The village of Elounda is beside the sea and has a view of peaceful Elounda Bay and Spinalonga.
The village has a number of restaurants and tavernas and many quality hotels are near by.
Elounda is noted for its coves and rocky coastlines as well as for the beautiful village of Elounda itself, the fishing harbour, the sunken city of Olous and the remains of a Byzantine basilica. Olous was an independent and autonomous city, which had minted many coins and also had formed a treaty of friendship with neighboring Lato and Rhodes.
