Κalimera dear Friends, CreteTravellers,
wishing you a bright, sunny day ahead.
Early in the morning today at Heraklion Old Venetian Port and this is the result ... bliss!
Heraklion is Crete's biggest city (among Chania, Rethimno, Agios Nikolaos, Sitia, Ierapetra), whose emblem is the Venetian fortress of Koules and it harmoniously combines a multilingual past as Byzantine churches standing next to the Venetian mansions and Turkish fountains and a thriving present with many restaurants, coffee shops and bars that cater to every taste.
Heraklion or Iraklion has undergone a significant makeover in recent years because of the city's increasing prosperity. Infrastructure works have included the redevelopment of the waterfront ( have a nice walk there ), improved roads, and a city bypass to ease traffic congestion and maybe the most important much of the historic center has been turned into pleasant pedestrian strips.
Let's see how you could spend one or two days in Heraklion.

Stay positive and safe!
Better days are coming soon!
