TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Heraklion Port as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Heraklion port is situated at the center of Heraklion Prefecture’s northern coast and adjacent to island’s capital.
The modern Heraklion port was firstly established in the 20th century and expanded eastwards of its older predecessor, the 700-year-old Venetian port that now serves as an attraction and a place of pleasure. Heraklion port is the second largest and busiest harbour in Greece after Piraeus.
The port is conveniently located along the middle part of the Cretan highway that serves the northern part of the island. The highway offers an easy getaway to the towns of Agios Nikolaos, Sitia, Kissamos, Rethymnon, Chania and Heraklion. It is busy all-year-round with an approximate number of 2 million visitors annually. The port services very popular routes such as Piraeus-Athens, Thessaloniki and a number of Aegean islands. Itineraries are regular and for other major ports, ships depart daily.
The Harbour hosts visitors for both touristic purposes and commercial activities. It possesses an array of facilities for the convenience of all travellers. In close proximity to the port, one can find in abundance shops, cafes and restaurants within a short walking distance.
The port is an 'umbrella' term covering both the new Heraklion Ferry Port and the old Venetian Harbour. The 'Castello a Mare' more widely known as Koules is a significant walled structure marking the entrance to the old Venetian port. The fortress dates back to the 16th century and is presumed that Cretan rebels were tortured in its underground chambers by mercenaries of the Ottoman Empire during the times of Crete's occupation. The Heraklion old town is located nearby, thus after a visit to the Fortress travellers can enjoy a walk through the vibrant streets of the city or taste some delicacies prepared by the friendly and hospitable locals.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Agios Nikolaos Port as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Agios Nikolaos Port is 65 kilometres east of Heraklion, located at the beautiful Mirabello Bay. The sea in Agios Nikolaos is splendid and the surrounding area of the city is noted for its sandy beaches and beautiful small coves. The landmark of the city is a small and deep lake, known as Voulismeni, where if you feel adventurous you can swim.
Agios Nikolaos port is a popular stop for ships from various cruise lines, such as Thomson, Louis, and Regent Seven Seas. The old harbour located more toward the centre of the town is used only by small fishing vessels and local fishermen. The port is unprotected to the North winds and sometimes it gets very windy. The islet Agioi Pantes which is opposite to the town is the only shelter from the winds. The biggest part of Agios Nikolaos is built on the remains of the ancient city of Lato. You can also visit the Archaeological Museum which is very interesting and study the ancient Minoan civilization of Crete. In the town, there is also a folk-art museum which is one of the most visited sites of Crete. If you have some more time you should definitely visit the island of Spinalonga which used to be a leper colony and now holds a small museum.
The city mainly lives on tourism and fishing, but despite the tourist growth, it has not lost its unique quality. Every summer the small harbour and the lake, surrounded by restaurants, cafes, shops and beach bars are full of tourists and locals, providing you with a perfect destination for your holidays.
The port of Agios Nikolaos connects the island with Athens, Greece’s capital and many Aegean islands like Santorini, Mykonos, Karpathos and Rhodes, which are uniquely beautiful.
