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.

Visitors can dwell in one of the many beautiful beaches or have fun in the water parks, patron one of the local cafes in the waterfront, visit the local archaeological sites, explore the villages of Ano Hersonissos, trek in the gorges of Avdou valley, visit the Lassithi plateau and much more.
Night owls will also be delighted to find a variety of night-time entertainment options, with the vibrant coastal road bustling with nightclubs one can find a hangout for every taste. During the summer times, Hersonissos tends to be packed with young tourists, coming from all around the world to enjoy a carefree and exciting vacation.
Over the course of time Hersonissos transpassed its humble origins and from a small fishing village, it eloped into a small town and a popular tourist resort. Yet, despite its rapid development natural beauty and local authenticity can still be found in and around the area. On the west side of the coastal road, 1km west of the harbour lies the Cape of Sarandis. There you can find the picturesque chapel of St. George, which definitely deserves some of your time and some space in your camera memo.
East of the coves you will find the Hill of Kastri. On your way up to the hill, you should not miss the ruins of the old basilica of Agia Paraskevi, boasting some beautiful mosaics. The east side of the picturesque chapel is built within a rock and it offers mesmerising views of the scenic port of Hersonissos.
Hersonissos, despite its reputation as a party hotspot, it is also perfectly enjoyable for children. Families can spend time in the two Water Parks, visit the Hersonissos Aquarium or the massive CretAquarium, do a trip on the 'happy train' or let them enjoy themselves in one of the play areas provided by the local restaurants.
Hersonissos has the best tourism infrastructure in Crete and is home to high-end hotels and a beautiful coast. It combines a vibrant and cosmopolitan environment, with a rich history, culture and natural beauty. The wider region of Hersonissos will award visitors with beautiful images, forgotten flavours and the traditional Cretan hospitality.
