TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Rethimno as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Rethymno is located in the north end of the prefecture and in the middle of Crete, built by the sea and is a city with many faces. It combines the conveniences of a large city with the beauty of an old town. Both elements will mesmerize you.
Every visitor's first stop in the city should be Lotzia, a very well-preserved Venetian building from the 16th century that houses the public library and can be found in the old town. Lotzia is a place of great historical interest, as it used to be a forum for noblemen and other prominent figures, where they would congregate in order to discuss matters of public affairs and commerce. Another sight of great interest is the Fortezza in Paleokastro hill. The fortress dates back to the Venetian occupation and visitors are admitted through the central entrance, into an arcade that leads to the interior of the castle.
Despite being the third largest city in the island, Rethymno maintains a unique character that transports visitors back in time. With well-preserved features that date back to the times of the Ottoman Empire and Venetian occupation. Rethymno is very charming and has a very relaxed 'small town' feel, wrapped in the hot Mediterranean sun, it maintains a unique oriental atmosphere similar to the port cities of Maghreb and Anatolia. The city combines Orthodox and Catholic churches, mosques, Venetian mansions, arches and cobble streets, making it one of the most well preserved medieval cities in Greece. The harmony and beauty of Rethymno will evoke feelings of awe and will excite even the most demanding visitors. Definitely a 'no miss' from any traveller's itinerary. The feeling you get from this lovely town will be something memorable. You will travel through time and you will enjoy Crete at its best.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Heraklion town as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Heraklion boasts the title of the largest urban entity in Crete and is also the administrative capital of the island. Heraklion has an immense historical and cultural heritage, as in close proximity to the city visitors can find the Palace of Knossos, which has served as the centre of Minoan civilisation. Throughout the city, you can also find a number of constructions dating back to the Venetian occupation such as Koules Fortress in the old port.
Heraklion is home to some world class monuments and cultural landmarks. Among the most outstanding man-made structures is the Heraklion Fortress that contains the 'old town'. Originally built by Arab merchants and later on reinforced by Venetians, the Fortress included seven bastions, of which only the Martinego bastion survives the passing of time. Moreover, visitors will be delighted to find one of the gates to the city, named Chanioporta, which is ornate with the winged lion of Saint Marc. Visitors can also pay pilgrimage to the grave of one of Greece's most important writers and Nobel recipient, N. Kazantzakis. The sight that marks his resting place also offers some mesmerising views of the city.
Throughout the city, one can spot statues and monuments commemorating prolific figures that have been important for Greece's course through history and have contributed to Crete's immense cultural heritage. Some of the names include renaissance painter El Greco, Poet Vicenzo Kornaros and Politician Eleftherios Venizelos.
Moreover, the Archaeological museum should be on the top of every visitor's list; a splendid space that boasts a massive collection of ancient artefacts from all over the island and covers more than 5,500 years of history. Special emphasis is given to the spoils of Minoan civilisation, which has been one of the first to spring in the Southern European cost and was almost entirely wiped out by a volcanic eruption and a subsequent tsunami. The museum is home to the most important collection of surviving Minoan antiquities in the world and awaits its visitors to explore the mysteries of this extinguished civilisation.
Nowadays, Heraklion represents a beacon of Greek modernization and has been subjected to an extensive urban sprawl, that gives it a truly unique character. Despite the expansion of concrete residential blocs and the immense traffic, a short walk through the bustling streets and alleys will travel you through thousand years of history and will reveal to you the hip side of Greece with its rich coffee culture and culinary delights that can be found in every corner.
