Beautiful Heraklion and we covered old Venetian fortress and many beaches . Though it was a 13 days trip but I have summed it up in 10 days. Last day we went to Athens again for a shopping day. Hire a car in Crete, and a drive from Heraklion to Crete is just wow. So you will love it.Greece doesnt give car on normal license, they need an international license. We somehow managed through a local vendor. But if you book online through europcar, Avis etc they will not give the car if you don’t have an international license.
