Capital city of Crete— Heraklion, written as Ηράκλειο in Greek sits in the East of the island. What impresses the most is the distance between its bus/ coach portal , port and airport , incredibly close to each other, which I have never see from any other city I have known so far. This is where we took the Anek ferry to Santorini , and of course it passes Milos on its line towards Athens. If you want to do island hopping, this could be a great start or ending distinction. Personally, I think Chania has the greatest Greek food in Greece, and Heraklion has one best Chinese restaurant in the whole country FOR ME ( I am sure it is very subjective but again for me only). Oh, name of the restaurant: No.7 Restaurant, easy to remember and it is at the mouth of port, near bus station.
Here I would post some photos taken during our trip in Dec 2019. Just to get a little bit of on-the -road feeling while trapped for many months at home.
