Airport Car Rental
Step off the plane and get your rental car right at Heraklion Airport! The city of Heraklion, named after the mythological Greek hero Heracles, is full of history. You can drive your rental to sites like the Venetian Walls and Lions Square, visit stunning churches and basilicas, or learn about the island’s history at one of its museums. Heraklion’s most famous attraction, Knossos Palace, was the center of the ancient Minoan civilization, and it’s also said to have been home to the legendary labyrinth of Minotaur.
All the history might get a bit overwhelming, but don’t worry, there are plenty of other fun things to do! Drive your rental car to one of the beautiful nearby beaches, take a sailing lesson, or try rock climbing on the cliffs of Karteros. On your way back to Heraklion, be sure to stop your rental car at a local Crete kafeneion or coffee shop, and also try some local fruits, cheeses, and olives.
There’s so much to do in Heraklion, but the island of Crete offers a whole lot more. Mountains, gorges, caves, pristine beaches, and ancient monasteries are waiting to be explored. You can even pick up your rental car at Heraklion Airport and drop it off in a different city, like Chania. Start planning your adventure now!
Heraklion Airport is also known as “Nikos Kazantsakis”.
