Agios Nikolaos is a small city with a vibrant cafe and bar atmosphere both day and night. 2. Heraklion is the largest of the four main cities in Crete. Heraklion does however provide you with the Cretan spirit, if you care to look closer into the heart of the city. 3. Located between Chania and Heraklion, the city of Rethymno is often portrayed as a smaller version of Chania, with an impressive mountain landscape setting behind the Venetian city centre. Heraklion is the largest of the four main cities in Crete. Situated to the west of the island, Chania welcomes you with Venetian houses, Roman walls and narrow, often labyrinth-like streets, with restored town houses and an array of coffee shops, restaurants and handicraft gift shops. The Venetian harbor comes to life every summer’s evening with a mix of locals and tourists gathering to walk along the Venetian lighthouse and enjoy an afternoon drink before going for a walk into the alleyways of the old town, in search of the perfect restaurant or gift shop. Smaller galleries and museums are also available in the city.
