Heraklion can be reached from Athens (and other major Greek cities) by frequent daily flights. The main airline is Aegean Airlines, and you may also fly by Ellinair and SkyExpress. Flight time to/from Athens is about 40min.
Airport to City center. From Heraklion airport you may either use public transportation (bus) or a taxi (stationed just outside the arrivals building). We highly recommend the taxi option. Approximate taxi fare is 10€ to city center.
Luxury ferries sail from Piraeus (Athens) to Heraklion every evening: departures from Piraeus is at approx. 9pm with arrival in Heraklion at 7am in the next morning. For precise schedule and fares please check: Minoan Lines, ANEK Lines and Superfast Ferries. We recommend that you book a bed in a cabin and enjoy a trip in the Archipelago drinking, dining, shopping etc in the ferry.
Port to City center. The port is located 1.2km from the city center. You may either take a taxi or opt for a walk to your hotel.
