In the sixteenth century the occupying Venetians built an impenetrable fortress surrounding the old city and its coast. The remains of this fortification are still intact as one of Heraklion's most noted features. Koules is the Venetian bastion that reaches out into the harbor, standing watch over the town. Walk further down the battlements and be treated to a gorgeous view of Heraklion's skyline.
The Minoan Palace of Knossos is a must see attraction of Crete only 5km south of city center. Stroll the 3500 year old skeleton of this palace laced with legend and maybe you will be the one to discover Daedalus's mythical labyrinth in the ruins. Amoudara's café lined beaches offer romantic horseback riding for visitors or to cool off in the steaming summer heat, try one of the local aqua parks that offer both tame and wild water slides and flumes.
