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 Palaiochora as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Paleochora is a small town located 77 km south of Chania, at the southwest coastline of Crete and it’s built on a small peninsula. Paleochora is built on the ruins of the ancient city of Kalamydi and its economy is based on tourism and agriculture. This small town stands on the ruins of the ancient city of Kalamydi and the locals earn their livings from tourism and agriculture.
Palaiochora is one of the fastest growing touristic destinations in Crete. The growth of this town started in the early ’70s when hippies started arriving on the island. Here, you will find small hotels, rooms to let, two campsites, restaurants, traditional tavernas, cafes and all the basic amenities you need for your holidays. Paleochora's wider area is astonishing, with crystal clear waters, well-organised beaches and beautiful isolated small docks. From the small harbour, you can take a ferry for a day trip to nearby beautiful destinations, like Agia Roumeli, Loutro, Sfakia and the island of Gavdos. All places with unique beauty and unspoiled landscape. The town itself is also astonishing, with small white houses, pretty pathways, cosy cafes and traditional tavernas, all run by locals.
The Venetians built a fort in the Palechora area, called the Castel Selino. Near the fort, the Venetians established a new settlement for workers and merchants called Vourgos. The pirate Hayreddin Barbarossa destroyed the fort in 1539, like many other forts in Crete. The most inhabitants of the town came here in the ’60s and they were mostly from the island of Gavdos. During that period the residents exchanged their land on Gavdos for land on Crete, who used to belong to Turkish people, through a state program. They created a community known as Gavdiotika in the old town of Paleochora, which is one of the most beautiful parts of the town.
Palaiochora is a unique destination, with great landscape, ideal for relaxing holidays and can be used as a base to explore one of the most beautiful parts of the Cretan island.
