Walk Heraklion's Secrets


Heraklion City

MEET & CHEESE: an alternative city walk



a fusion walk along Heraklion’s finest underground, yet traditional locations. Walk with me in the neighborhoods of LAKKOS & AGIA TRIADA to experience the city's diversity crowded by colorful street art and its forbidden memories. "MEET" embodies an era of Heraklion’s famous Red Light district. Prostitution, drugs, the origins of „Rebetiko" and one of the most famous social groups - the Mangas - were found in the area of Lakkos. "CHEESE" stands for Crete’s flavorful cuisine. A large variety of cheeses so-called „Tiria“, the worldwide known Cretan olives and traditional rusks called „paximadi“ play an important role in everyday life. Together, we will enjoy one of Crete's most significant pleasures - food! We will make two stops to share typical Cretan snacks and enjoy the neighborhood's atmosphere with locals. Crossing districts to Agia Triada, I will show you the city’s most diverse and colorful, yet somehow forgotten neighborhood. Walking through the narrow streets of Agia Triada, you will experience Heraklion's multicultural society, and spot some real secret gems. My most important message for you is to feel the Greek vibe. In addition, I will tell you where to shop, where to eat and where to go out like a local! All participants receive a code to access a "secret list" on my webpage full of insider tips.
