It is known beyond the borders of Greece that Heraklion is the biggest city on the island of Crete.
It also has the biggest of the 3 international commercial airports on the island, named after Nikos Kazantzakis who is Crete's most famous poet. And according to the passenger volume and goods transshipment, the port of Heraklion is Crete's biggest one as well.
However, many holidaymakers who return for many years used to meet Heraklion only briefly, when arriving to Crete or leaving by airplane or ferry boat. The town itself is frequently said to be ugly, and this is not quite incorrect because Heraklion grew rather fast and rather disharmoniously, and the result of this uncontrolled growth of urban building looks at the first glance not very attractive.

Most of the visitors are then indeed very surprised when e.g. after a tour of the excavation site at Knossos they take a side trip to the archaeologic museum at Heraklion and by that occasion have some looks at the inner city.
Heraklion does in fact have some most beautiful quarters. Among those is the old town with its all-year vivacious squares, e.g. the square that frames the lions fountain, and the attaching St. Titus Square which since a few years now marks the center of a large pedestrian area.
The municipal park borders to them, named after Crete's most famous painter Domenikos Theotokopoulos (better known as "El Greco"), and towards the sea one gets straight to the old port with its fortress and its large and very picturesque depots from the medieval times.

It is after all quite comfortable to go to Heraklion by suburban bus, and tours of the excavation site of Knossos and subsequent stop at the museum are offered by many coach tour operators. In case that you should prefer to combine these things in an extended day trip, it is however advisable to use a rental car e.g. by Eurocars Rent-a-Car because it provides the required temporal independence.
