Book a flight to Heraklion to discover hidden gems beneath the city’s tough cosmopolitan exterior, which includes excellent architecture, delicious culinary delights and some of the most famous sites in antiquity.

Heraklion’s high season falls within July and August when the weather is warmest and the number of visitors rapidly increases. Many flock here to enjoy the various beaches and outdoor excursions, but expect prices to be much higher during this busy season. The months of May and June, as well as September and October, are ideal for visiting Heraklion, not only because the weather is pleasant without being overbearing, but because the region is much quieter. Also, as most of these months fall within school term times, this is the ideal time to book a cheap flight to Heraklion.

The Haraklion Summer Arts Festival takes place annually from July to September. Bringing together a variety of ballet, opera and theatre performances, many of which are internationally renowned, it is clear why this festival has become famous for its diversity. The performances take place in a number of outdoor theatres which are often set in some historic locations across the city. Some of the events are free, however, tickets need to be purchased for some.

During late March, locals descend on Heraklion to commemorate the 1821 Greek uprising against the Ottoman Empire. This is another great time to travel to Heraklion to see soldiers take part in an impressive parade through the main streets.

Why visit Heraklion?

Heraklion, an ancient city once thought to be the home of the legendary Minotaur, it now stands an incredible urban fortress, offering visitors a unique experience steeped in myth and history.

In just a day, you can stroll through the old city towards the Venetian Koules Fortress, a formidable structure overlooking a beautiful harbour, before lunching at a seafront restaurant to sample some of the region’s local cuisine. The Historical Museum of Crete, and the nearby Archaeological Museum, are also just a short walk along the coast offering visitors a once in a lifetime glimpse at a wonderful collection of Crete’s historical treasures. If it’s ancient life you seek, take a quick drive to one of the most important archaeological sites in the world, the Palace of Knossos.

As night falls around Lions Square, home to the famous Morosini Fountain, you’ll enter a central hub for night-time activity. The fountain leads to a street full of picturesque gift shops, markets and boutiques, perfect for spending an afternoon browsing in before heading to the surrounding bars and cafes for a relaxing evening under the stars.

What is the climate like in Heraklion?

Getting to and from Heraklion International Airport (HER), otherwise known as Nikos Kazantzakis Airport, is relatively easy with plenty of transportation links into the city. A regular bus service is in operation outside the airport, as is a local taxi rank. Both are available and can take you directly into the city. Whilst the taxi service is reliable, it’s always best to agree on a fee beforehand.

What is the best way to travel around Heraklion?

A large and heavily populated city, Heraklion has a good public transport system. For a small fee the local bus route offers trips as far as Knossos. Whilst most attractions can be reached on foot, taxis can easily be hired for a pre-agreed price. You’ll find these stands near to squares, such as Lion Square. If you prefer, there are also a number of rental companies within the airport.

Heraklion airport overview

Named after Nikos Kazantzakis, the local philosopher and writer, Heraklion International Airport is Greece’s second-busiest airport, serving around five million passengers per year. Located 5km (3 miles) east of Crete’s main city, Heraklion, the eastern end of its runway lies just a few metres from the island’s shoreline, making landings and take-offs an exciting experience for first-time visitors.

A small but busy airport, most travellers taking flights to Heraklion International will see the airport briefly as they move on to other parts of Crete. The airport will cease to exist in the near future as a brand new airport, currently being built in Kastelli Pediados, is scheduled for completion in 2015.

As Heraklion International shares its space with a military base taking photographs or videos of the exterior of the airport, particularly its airfield, is prohibited.

Queues sometimes lead out the doors when it’s busy. This can prove unpleasant when it’s hot, so keep some drinks and sun-block handy if you’re heading to Crete in summer.

What airport do you fly into for flights to Heraklion?

Heraklion N. Kazantzakis Apt. (HER), located 1.7 mi from the city centre, is the airport you fly into when you book flights to Heraklion.
