Hello Heraklion! -The hidden spots

Hidden places of Heraklion City that can blow your mind!

Day 1 - Heraklion
Events of the day
Up on the Venetian Walls
The Venetian walls are the perfect choice to see the city in another point of view. They surround the city and it is really relaxing to go there either for walking or cycling. At Kenourgia Porta, which was built in the 70s, you will find a kiosk where you can rent a bike for free. Just bring your ID. 

If you do so, on your left side you will see some stairs bringing you up to the walls. When you arrive and start moving, on your right view you will see a small square that has now been renovated to a Garden-Theater dedicated to M. Chatzidakis (one of the greatest greek Composers) where many events are held in summertime, afterwards you will see a small park full of pine trees and you will have yourself ending up at Kazantzakis Grave. This closes for visitors at 14:00. So hurry up.

At the meantime enjoy Mountain Giuchta, the city of Heraklion on your feet ending up until the blue sea of Aegean. Going down the stairs you will end up back on the main road but next to a new park with 2 old turkish buildings.

Continuing you will find "Kommeno Mpenteni",the second gate of Heraklion and after that the old cinema Vithleem, where you can find the club of cine-fans, who organize in summertime free movie nights. A little bit further you will find the gallery dedicated to El Greco, the famous Cretan painter. 
Dukas Cafe
A Cafe like no others. It is really worth going here even just to view the inside of it. It is a Mansion decorated in a Retro style as it has many authentic antiques an a old flipper game (address: Gerasimou Pardali 5, 71201)
Here you can eat "Pikilia Kreatikon", a variety of meat (chicken,pork,sausage etc) which they cook right away out at the pavement just before you enter Dukas. Of course, you can also eat your meal outside in small traditional wooden tables and chairs. It is open from 9 in the morning and it serves greek coffee until late in the evening offering you Cretan Raki and live traditional music.
Price Range from 2,5 until 7 (main dish)
