Transfer and taxi to Heraklion Port
The port facilities of Heraklion are represented by the Old Venetian Harbour, which previously served as the port, and a modern cargo and passenger port. The visitors that come to Crete by ferry have an urgent need to reach the hotel or rented accommodation. The most convenient way to get in/out of any place is to hire a taxi.
However, you should pay attention that the vessel can deliver you to the opposite side of a harbour which provides no taxi stands. Thus, you will have to cope with plenty of meters on foot with a heavy suitcase to find a vehicle.
If you wish to avoid any possible misunderstanding and unpleasant surprises in a foreign country, you should book a transfer. A personal driver will wait for you in the area of arrival and provide assistance with baggage.
Old Venetian Harbour
The Old Venetian Harbour is the old port of Heraklion. At present this area is occupied by plenty of small boats and yachts. The history of the port is as old as the city itself. One of the most popular places there is a long mole. Local residents and tourists adore walking along the path, especially when it’s warm outside and the slight sea winds bring the desired freshness.
Modern port of Heraklion
The territory of the new passenger and cargo port stretches to the east from the Old Venetian Harbour. In recent years, the administrative bodies of Heraklion have given considerable attention to the development of modern infrastructure of the port area. The target aim of all their efforts is to provide high standards of comfort to travelers. Among the most significant improvements is the new passenger terminus. It makes the stay of passengers enjoyable within all its new quarters of the total area of 2.500 square meters.
The new Heraklion Port handles 2 million passengers per year. It caters for the needs of daily routes from Piraeus, Santorini, and other islands. In addition, the port ensures service for cruise vessels coming from mainland Greece.

The cost of a transfer to the port of Heraklion
The easiest and most convenient way to reach the required place is to use a taxi service. The city also has bus routes. However, they are not scheduled. Moreover, to find the nearest bus stop or a taxi stand is quite a challenging task, especially if the vessel delivers you to the opposite side of the harbour.
The average cost for transportation by taxi to the city center of Heraklion is 6 euro. Note that each extra service offered by taxi drivers is paid. Thus, you have to be ready to charge for traffic jams, out-of-service time, etc.
When you book a transfer, you pay only for the distance, while all the rest facilities are offered free of charge (for example, a child seat).
