Iraklio in detail


Iraklio is a big city and Crete's major point of entry, so it's well stocked with all manner of accommodation. Most options fall into the midrange bracket, and there are a few smarter, boutique-style and business hotels peppered about. This is more a port than a resort, so beach retreats aren't a feature. The tourist tax ranges from €.50 to €4 per room per night.
