Located on the eastern side of the island, between Rethymno and Lassithi, Heraklion is the most popular region of Crete and is the largest city in the region. Heraklion Town, the city that is the capital of the island of Crete, is one of the most populated cities on the island. Heraklion is a wonderful place to base yourself from which to explore the two major archaeological sites of Crete, Knossos Palace and Phaistos Palace, which are near each other. With its stunning beaches, vibrant towns, and hidden gems from the Venetian era, the region itself is one of the most charming places in the world.
