Car hire in Heraklion
Hiring a car in Heraklion
Crete’s capital, and the fifth largest city in the whole of Greece, Heraklion is beautiful place to embrace Grecian culture whilst visiting the island. Much different to other towns and villages in Crete, it is recognised as a busy and vibrant working metropolis. Located on the coast, Heraklion boasts splendid architecture, colourful markets and an array of excellent restaurants, bars and cafes. Locals will welcome you with open arms, and recent road developments make it an easy destination to locate by vehicle.
If you want to delve into the heart of Heraklion, you will have to set off on foot, taking a stroll down its many cobbled streets and passageways. However, if you’re located away from the city centre, hiring a car to get to Heraklion is recommended, as public transport may restrict how long you can spend in the city and can sometimes be unreliable.
