Heraklion’s a lively student town with a very vibrant nightlife. It is recommended that you don’t leave the city without having experienced it at least once. There’s bars, pubs, and nightclubs for all tastes. Here’s our favourite spots:


tita mpriki - Our favourite bar in the centre. Good music and interesting crowd (usually) $
