How to get there
Starting from U.K. fly to Iraklio (Heraklion) preferably, or Hania (Chania) airport.
If you arrive at Iraklio (Heraklion) Airport you can take a taxi to the bus station for about 7.00 Euro or take the old blue and white bus no. 1 just beyond the car park. Buy a ticket at the little wooden hut for 0.70 Euro. Get off just after the bus climbs steeply beside the old town walls, along with most of the other people. When you get off the bus turn right and pass the big museum on your left.
