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 Georgioupolis as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Georgioupoli is a resort village 38 km southeast of Chania, in West Crete. The area around Georgioupolis is Apokoronas, with its picturesque villages and verdant landscape.
Georgioupolis serves as the end point of river Almyros, where its waters meet the sea. A few steps away from the town Almyros forms a lake that hosts an ecosystem of native species of birds and animals. You can spot the lake from the main highway as you approach Georgioupolis from Chania. Upon entering the town, you will be greeted by rows of eucalyptus and cypress trees all the way to the main square, which makes the landscape eerie and picturesque at the same time.
The beaches of Georgioupolis expand all the way eastwards, almost 7km from the village centre. They are sandy and well equipped to host an array of visitors and offer fun activities for both adults and kids. If you prefer a quiet spot you can look for the crescent-shaped beach right in the village. Also, the main square is quite lively and you can patron one of the many tavernas and bars and just sit and watch the world go by.
Just 3km from Georgioupolis visitors can find lake Kournas, one of the few freshwater lakes in the island. The lake is surrounded by the Cretan range of the White Mountains, which are reflected in its water and it used to be home to eels but now is famous for hosting terrapins and being a popular tourist attraction. As you enter the lake you can find plenty of shops and tavernas, as well as on the hillside overlooking Kournas. On the top of the hillside, visitors can enjoy mesmerising views of the lake. Despite the tourist influx in the last few years, the lake still retains its natural beauty and it is a worthwhile destination if you are in the area.
Georgioupolis is ideal for those who seek relaxation and tranquillity in their vacations. It retains the perfect balance between a town and a village, thus whereas you will be away from the hustle and the bustle of the city, you will never feel the isolation of the countryside.
