Crete's largest city, Heraklion remains best known for its proximity to a sprawling Bronze Age archaeological site, once the center of a vanished Minoan civilization.
Kick off your visit on the 26th (Sun): pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Saint Titus and then contemplate the long history of The Palace of Knossos. Here are some ideas for day two: get a new perspective on nature at The Natural History Museum of Crete and then get engrossed in the history at Heraklion Archaeological Museum.

For traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, use the Heraklion trip planner.

Sydney, Australia to Heraklion is an approximately 26- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and ferry; or do a combination of flight and shuttle. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 8 hours traveling from Sydney to Heraklion. Expect slightly colder evenings in Heraklion when traveling from Sydney in April, with lows around 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 27th (Mon) to allow time for travel back home.
