View MV Discovery - 2009 on dpedler's travel map.

This city is also known as Iraklion and is the largest city and capital of Crete. Crete being the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean and the most southern of the Greek Islands.

Today’s tourist visited: Castello del Molo, the Marine Fortress that towers over the entrance of the Venetian Harbour; Agios Titos church with its wooden chandelier; Morosini Fountain with its four lions; the markets – I liked the rabbits hanging in the butcher’s window; instead of looking at ruins I visited the cities Archaeological Museum; and Venetian City Wall that surrounds the main city centre. It doesn’t sound like much but it’s been another full day and I’ll sleep well…

Thinking back on my day in Crete, scooters, graffiti and disrepair come to mind – and overall a nice place for a visit.
