This excursion takes you to the biggest open market in Crete, which is organized once a week; where you will have the opportunity for shopping on a very low cost price. If you want to get small presents and souvenirs for home, this is the best choice for you. By visiting the open market in Heraklion you will get the feeling of market life in Crete. The buzz on the market will bring you back in time and you will see how the locals try to present and sell their products. Apart from souvenirs and clothes you can also find food and bio-Cretan products.
On the market you will have the opportunity to taste the traditional “suvlaki” on foot as well, on the many small posts selling food and drinks. Later, enjoy some free time to explore the bustling town, its pedestrian zones with shops like Marks & Spencer, Zara, Benetton etc., or, do as the Greeks do, and enjoy your café frappé (iced coffee) in one of the many stylish sidewalk cafés.
