    Car hire reviews in Heraklion

    Car Hire Heraklion ReviewsCapital of Crete and the island's main port, Heraklion offers a fine blend of ancient history with all the benefits and attractions of a modern seaside destination. Its lively waterfront area is blessed with many fine al fresco restaurants, tree-lined squares and several excellent museums, and all within a few minutes of Ammoudara Beach, one of the best in the Mediterranean. In ancient times, Heraklion was the port of Knossos where the Minoans (Europe's oldest-known civilization) traded gold, saffron and ceramics. Today, The magnificent Palace of Knossos is not only Crete's top attraction but one of the most important tourist sites in the whole of Europe. Located just 3 miles south-east of the city, this vast archaeological treasure trove is remarkable for its elaborate decoration, some of which dates back to 2000 BC. Spread across almost 30 different galleries, the Heraklion Archaeological Museum in the centre of town depicts more than 5,500 years of history, displaying many of the precious artifacts unearthed at nearby Knossos, most notably the world-famous and perfectly-preserved Prince of the Lilies fresco dated 1550 BC. Heraklion's Old Town is an extensive maze of pedestrianised streets with around 1,000 shops selling food, souvenirs and the very best in Cretian handicrafts. The island of Crete (the largest in Greece) is best seen by road, and with a car hire in Heraklion you can discover the island's many highlights, such as Chania (the second-largest town in Crete) and Agios Georgios, one of the most atmospheric places on the island.
