HERAKLION-MARKET (Heraklion city tour - Aquarium)
The visit to the big Saturday open air street market in Heraklion is the main event of the day. As well as fruit and vegetables, you can find shoes, clothes, fabrics and local products at very low prices. The atmosphere feels like an oriental bazaar - full of noise and the cries of the vendors selling their goods. This is the perfect opportunity to stock up on spices and Cretan herbs.
At the centre of Heraklion we disembark at Liberty square. You will have free time to explore the centre with its souvenir shops, boutiques, jewellry stores, cafes and restaurants lining the streets. Shop till you drop or just sit and enjoy a coffee and watch the world go by, the choice is yours.
The last stop of the day will be Cretaquarium. This is where your exploration of the Mediterranean Sea World begins. Here, you will come face to face with hundreds of species and thousands of living organisms and be fascinated by their behaviour as they reveal the wide variety of shapes, colours, habits in their world. Learn about their needs and reflect what our common future may hold....
