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 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.
