Car Rental in the Port of Heraklion

The port of Heraklion is the busiest port in Crete and the 3rd largest in Greece. It is an important centre for the movement of tourist and commercial ships, goods and passengers throughout the Mediterranean basin.

The port of Heraklion is about 1 km from the city centre and is easily accessible by rental car, on foot, by public transport or by taxi. The port is connected daily with 2 daily ferry services to Piraeus, while during the summer months it is connected by regular services to the Cyclades and the Dodecanese.

The ferries depart from Piers I & II, in the western part of the port, and passengers have the opportunity to issue their tickets at the ticket offices of the respective ferry companies they have chosen to travel with.
