In the heart of the Old town, Olive Green is located within walking distance from the main points of interest and the central market. Wander the streets around Olive Green and uncover some of the most attractive corners in the city. Liberty (Eleftherias) Square is an excellent vantage point from which to explore Heraklion.
Starting from the Archaeological Museum, head west on Korai and Dedalou streets, two vibrant streets full of shops, boutiques and some of the most unique café and ouzeri (traditional small restaurants serving finger food and local drinks) revealed before you. From the Lions Square up the Valide Mosque in Kornarou Square, the city reveals its traditional character and Cretan culture through a unique combination of tastes, aromas and historical monuments.
