ÁGIOS NIKÓLAOS, CRETEThis Cretan resort town has three sides to it: the picturesque waterfront at the port; the seemingly bottomless Lake Voulismeni, encircled by restaurants; and sandy beaches. Beyond soaking up the ambiance, you can browse at clothing boutiques and fish markets or tour Byzantine churches and a small archaeological museum. It’s also a convenient departure point for an outing to Heraklion, where you’ll find the amazing Minoan archaeological site of Knossos.
