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 Piskopiano as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Piskopiano is a traditional village 25 km east of Heraklion town.
Piskopiano village resembles Koutouloufari, however, it was founded earlier as a settlement and has a history dating back before Koutouloufari was created. The village is a pleasant getaway for travellers who look for some time to unwind and relax. In the main village road, you will have a number of establishments such as cafes, shops and restaurants that will make your stay comfortable.
Piskopiano is an excellent choice for both early birds and night owls. Some of the best nightlife is nestled along the village all the way down to vibrant Hersonissos, yet, hotels are located in the quiet parts of the village, so you won't lose any sleep. In Hersonissos, which is just a mile away, you will find some splendid beaches, water parks, bars and restaurants.
Koutouloufari is in a very close proximity to Piskopiano, so you should definitely make some time to visit this charming little village. On the other hand, if shopping-therapy is what you need then Hersonissos is a small walk away down the hill from Piskopiano. There you will find an array of local designer fashion boutiques and shops. For younger visitors, an excellent getaway would be the Star Beach Waterpark. Entrance is free, but you have to pay for the sunbeds and water-slide rides. If you prefer spending time at the beach then you are lucky since the sandy beaches of Hersonissos are brilliant with frothy waves and crystal-clear waters.
Has anyone ever complained that they are bored with the view of the deep-blue Sea of Crete? Perhaps only the Cretans themselves, who have grown up with this magnificent view all around and take it for granted, not realising what an important part it plays in their lives and how much enjoyment it offers to them every day. But just ask a Scandinavian or Dutchman what the colours of the seas of Greece mean to them.
Piskopiano is an excellent choice for all travellers as it combines both the calm and serene village environment with the more vibrant and cosmopolitan atmosphere of Hersonissos.
