Heraklion is the largest city on the island of Crete. The main airport and the the largest port are also here. It isn't as picturesque as Chania. It is chaotic, loud and the beaches just aren't as nice. In all fairness if you drive about an hour out of this city you will reach the most affluent part of the island with the largest concentration of five star hotels.

It is the biggest city on Crete and also probably the worst city. It is industry, dirty and lack of character. Even the Greeks consider it the armpit of Greece. We make the mistake of staying there for 5 nights and it was pretty horrible.
