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 Sitia airport as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Sitia Municipal Airport is located in a distance of 1 km from the town. In 1984 the first aircraft of Olympic Aviation was landing at the small airport of Sitia. After that first aeroplane, many years passed and in 2016 the airport moved to a new terminal building in order to serve the increasing touristic needs. The new building has an area of 7,500 m2 and is a very functional small European airport.
Sitia airport can serve aircraft of small and medium size. Regular flights to and from the airport are made from/to other Greek airports. Also, the airport is able to serve charter flights and private aircraft. During summer time many companies operate at the airport like Aegean, Sky Express, Scandinavian Air and Danish Air. Sitia town which is very close to the airport has a population of 9500 people, is the easternmost city on Crete and perhaps the least developed. Even during the busy summer peak, Sitia retains a certain charm and laid-back style. On the other hand, this means that it is not deserted in the winter, like other tourist resorts of Crete.
During the Venetian occupation, the town of Sitia was destroyed three times. In 1508 by a terrible earthquake, in 1538 by the pirate Barbarossa and in 1651 by the Venetians so as not to fall in the hands of the Turks. For two centuries Sitia stopped to exist as a town, until 1869, the present city was built in 1870. Today, its long sandy beach offers the pleasures of sand, sea, swimming and all the windsurfing opportunities in the world. Sitia is very much a living town, which happens to have tourism, rather than the other way around. Sitia has the most cheerful and friendly Cretans you could hope to meet, people who love their town and keep it clean and tidy, not so much to attract tourists but more because they themselves take pleasure in it and are proud of it.
