Kokinos Pirgos Vacation Packages
Kokinos Pirgos is located some 210 miles (338 kilometers) from Athens, the country's capital, and about 30 miles (48 kilometers) from Heraklion.
Visiting just one town or city, regardless of its popularity, will only ever furnish you with a glimpse into the wider cultural and natural fabric of a region. So try to allow a few days to tour Crete Island's other attractions. Pay a visit to the Palace of Phaestos and Komos Beach in Faistos, approximately 7 miles (11 kilometers) to the west of Kokinos Pirgos.
If you're staying in Kokinos Pirgos, experience Rethimnon. Approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northwest, this regional transport and shopping hub is where you can find Kara Mousha Pasha Mosque, Municipal Gallery of Lefteris Kanakakis and Rethimnon Town Hall. Make sure you don't head back to Kokinos Pirgos until you've visited Rethimnon's Rethimnon Venetian Port, University of Crete and Institute of Mediterranean Studies.
Tourists seeking places to reflect upon life's great mysteries, will relish visiting some of the region's many churches. Make the effort to really get to know Crete Island by researching its earlier chapters. A good place to start is with a visit to the area's historic archeological sites.
Take your own gear or rent the gear locally, and make the most of the region's water sports. Snorkeling is a good activity to try. Another option is scuba diving. Travelers who prefer getting off the main tourist trail will enjoy Kokinos Pirgos' city walking tours, cycling tours and guided nature walks.
Everything must end sometime, but be rest assured, when you have to leave Kokinos Pirgos, you'll have many special photos and memories to remember your journey.
