Erasmus+ Heraklion city tour

Feb 20, 2024 | Events, Students

The Municipality of Heraklion offered an exciting city tour to the spring semester Erasmus students of the University of Crete on Friday February 16, 2024, featuring the most important monuments of the old city of Heraklion.

The city tour focused on August 25th Street, where the most important monuments of the city are located. These monuments bear a centuries-long history of fierce battles with conquerors, natural disasters, and the cultural imprint of its different settlers (Arabs, Venetians, Ottomans). Today Heraklion is the commercial center of the island of Crete and home to the most famous archaeological attraction of Crete: the Palace of Knossos.

We would like to thank the Municipality of Heraklion and the tour guide, Mrs. Lina Logkaki, for offering their excellent welcome services to the Erasmus students of the UoC.
