Getting to and from the port

car

By car

The port is easy to find by car and well signposted. However, the central location of the port means that you can expect traffic throughout the year.
taxi

By Taxi

There is a taxi rank located across from the passenger terminal inside the port gates. Heraklion is a large city and unlike at other ports like Mykonos and Santorini you should have no problem locating a taxi.
bus

By Bus

Heraklion Central Bus Station (bus station A) is located opposite the port on Leoforos Nearchou and serves destinations along the north coast of the island and to the east including Rethymnon, Chania and Agios Nikolaos in Lassithi. For destinations to the south such as Zaros, Mires and Matala you must use Heraklion Chanioporta Bus Station (bus station B). If going here from the port we suggest taking a taxi as walking can take half an hour.
on foot

On Foot

Walking is the easiest way to get around Heraklion if you do not carry a lot of luggage. The city is compact and you can walk the city from end to end in less than an hour.
