Summer in the city!

Culture tours for the whole family!

We begin our family culture tours in the city of Heraklion! Let’s become tourists in our city and discover it through play! 

Our cultural thematic  routes are specifically designed educational programs that take place outdoors, in monuments and sites of cultural interest with the intent of familiarizing visitors with our city’s heritage. Through a hidden treasure hunt, we read maps and old stories, explore monuments and public buildings, solve puzzles and decipher secrets. Walking on the streets, we explore along with families the history of the city of Heraklion, discovering its natural and cultural heritage.

Choose the theme you like the best and come with your company to walk together the city of Heraklion:

hidden in twelve places in the city of Heraklion!
