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 Kissamos as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Kissamos is a town and municipality in the west of the island of Crete and part of the Chania regional unit. The city of Kissamos is also known as Kastelli Kissamou and often known simply as Kastelli after the Venetian castle that was there.
Visitors to Kissamos can experience the immense cultural heritage and immerse themselves in the local lifestyle. The best season for this purpose is in the Summer where an array of cultural events and festivals take place. The region is also a haven for alternative backpackers, nature lovers and those interested in eco-tourism.
The town also provides all essential facilities to make your visit as comfortable as possible. There you can find bank branches and ATMs, a post office, internet cafes, health centres, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. The waterfront is also lined with tavernas, cafes and bars open at flexible hours. Kissamos harbour is also well-connected with the ports of Kithira, Peloponnese and Piraeus, where ships depart daily along these routes. There are also daily cruises to Gramvousa and Balos, two of the most beautiful and remote islets in Crete.
From the centre of Kissamos town, 2 km away lies a scenic fishing port. From there visitors can spot the little 10th-century church of St. John Damiali built in a rocky hillside and opposite a tunnel leading to Damiali beach, an enchanting pebble cove with crystal-clear, emerald water.
One should not miss the sandy beach of Falassarna located 16 km west of Kastelli. The beach is a very popular destination renowned for its crystal-clear waters. Yet, despite its popularity, only a few tavernas and small hotels retain their business at Falassarna. There you can also find the ancient remnants of a small 6th BC century town. The town was initially built by the seaside but nowadays the ruins lie about 300m from the water due to rising tides in western Crete that have steadily increased the past 2,000 years.
Further south of Kastelli one can find the Ennia Horia or Nine Villages, an enchanting mountainous region known for its chestnut trees. Most people traverse through the region in order to visit Elafonisi, but visitors are advised to allocate some time in exploring what is possibly the lushest area of Crete. The area is compromised by the villages of Topolia, Koutsomados, Vlatos, Elos, Pervolia, Papadiana, Amidagakofelli, Kambos and the most renowned village of Milia, which has been reconstructed to resemble a more traditional outlook.
Kissamos is definitely one of the most worthwhile destinations in Crete. It is conveniently located between Chania town and some of the most beautiful beaches of whole Greece. Visitors to Crete should not miss an opportunity to visit this unique and enchanting place.
