Need a quickie intro to the city? Toss aside your guidebook and instead get the Heraklion scoop straight from those who know it best: the locals who live here!
Join us for a casual meet-up with other like-minded travellers, starting at Eleftherias Square, in the city centre. Eleftherias Square is the main square in Heraklion, near the Archaeological Museum, the Astoria Hotel, the Prefecture, and the Gate of Saint George.
From there, together we’ll stroll for almost an hour through the busy city, pointing out the things you need to know and need to see while you’re in town. We’ll end our mini tour at a café located in a hidden garden under the grand fortification walls of Heraklion, a favourite spot for locals.
As we walk to our little oasis, we’ll give you travel tips and suggestions for what to do, see, and experience while you’re in Heraklion. We can also help you to organise a few tours while you’re in town, catered to your interests and giving you the insights that only locals know.
Think of it as a meet-up and info desk all rolled into one — get the tips you need to know from those who are in-the-know, then kick back and relax with some new friends in a new city. There’s no better way to tap into local life in Heraklion!
