This foto was taken a couple of months ago while I was about to go for running along the (small) port of Heraklion. I couldn't resist at this amazing scenery ! Going for a walk or for running at this place would be a great experience, especially if you go at around 7-8 at night. You'll see a wonderful sunset with all these colours coming up.. Just perfect !
Ask the locals for the "Koules Castle" to give you directions to go there, it is a 5 minute walk from the center of the city. There is a road of 2,5 kilometers to walk along the sea with many people going, sitting, chating etc. If you go to Heraklion some time, don't hesitate to go there !
