TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Sitia as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. Sitia is a port town and a municipality in Lasithi. It lies east of Agios Nikolaos and northeast of Ierapetra.
Sitia port is the most important economic and financial hub of the Lasithi region. Sitia town itself is one of the least touristic parts of Crete. Its history goes back to the Venetian occupation and it was later destroyed and reconstructed by the Turks. For this reason, not many historical sites survived the passing of time. However, the region as a whole still provides some traces and monuments of its early times.
In Sitia, you can do the usual things such as hanging around the long beach in the eastern part of the city or visiting the waterfront in the harbour where you can enjoy your coffee and have some lunch or dinner. Alternatively, you can find yourself lost in the alleys of the old town where you can explore some traditional houses with courtyards and Anatolian gardens, visit the castle of Kazarma or the ruins of a Venetian monastery. Additionally, you can visit the Archaeological Museum where you can find one of the permanent exhibitions of folklore objects dating back to the early 20th and 19th centuries. Finally, a visit to the local produce stalls is a must as you can learn about and purchase some of the finest products in the whole of Crete, among others you can find some world-class wine, olive oil and raki spirit.
Sitia in its core is a residential town and tourism there is a by-product of development, which wasn't really sought after. Here you will meet some of the most delightful and hospitable people of Crete, who are doing their best to keep their hometown at its best and they are very proud of Sitia. This solitary region is also home to a number of monasteries like Toplou, archaeological sites, beaches lined up with palms, sparkling bays and mountainous areas that provide excellent opportunities for some fascinating hiking trails.
There is also a number of traditional villages such as Zou, Ziros, Handras and the abandoned Ethia and the surroundings of Karidi, where you can explore some old buildings and archaeological sites. Moreover, Sitia gave birth to one of the quintessential Greek epic writers, his name was Vitsentzos Kornaros. Kornaros was born in 1553 in Trapezounda in Sitia and he was destined to leave his trademark in Greek literature in 1600 when he composed his magnum opus 'Erotokritos' which to this day remains one of the staple literature legacies of Greece.
Sitia is a true gem, off the beaten track and unaffected by the spoils of mass tourism. You should hurry up, since the construction of an airport in Sitia is finished and things might change rapidly.

TransferPlan will transfer you from and to Analipsi as quickly, safely and comfortably as possible. The village of Analipsi is located 20km east of Heraklion and takes its name after the church of the Ascension of Christ. It is located in a fertile valley, cultivated mainly with olive groves. It is also known as Analipsis Hersonissou, as it is very close to the seaside resort of Hersonissos.
Tourist development in Analipsis began very recently and that sets her apart from other seaside resorts in the area. Thus, Analipsis maintains a very authentic Cretan character. Once you enter the village you will be surrounded by white houses with beautiful gardens and olive groves. One can stroll around the alleys and the stone-paved square, which is reasonably lively in the afternoon. Many shops and cafes can be found in the main commercial street of the village, which runs upright the coast.
One very picturesque sight traveller can visit is the little church in the beach of Analipsis. The waves are leaping at the underpinning of the church, thus creating a very scenic landscape which is adorned in the typical imaginary of travellers over what quintessential Greece looks like.
East of the church the main beach of Analipsis is located, which is reasonably long, sandy and organized with umbrellas and sunbeds. In the west side of the church, the coast is covered by unsmooth rocks and most people do not prefer it for swimming unless they want to spend some quiet time or take a walk below the tamarisk trees.
If you walk further west you can find a small, sandy cove which offers shelter from the summer winds and the sea is rough elsewhere. At the mouth of Apostemis creek lies another sandy beach. Due to its proximity to the river, one can find a few ducks waddling around.
