One place I wanted to surely visit was Heraklion, the capital of Crete. From Chersonissos I went with public transport which was an experience. Just take a seat if possible and wait until the bus assistant comes to you so that you can buy your ticket. After about one hour, the bus arrived at Heraklion. I stepped out of the bus and took some pictures at the harbour. After that I took a hop on hop of bus to Knossos.
Knossos is the largest Bronze Age archaeological site on Crete and has been called Europe’s oldest city. I walked around the site for some time. I could spend hours in a place like that. It´s interesting and there are many things to see. Most of all I find it interesting to imagine how the ancient people must have lived there a long time ago. After walking and taking pictures it was time to go and pick the bus that would bring me back to the busstop. From there I took the bus to Chersonissos.
