Take a tour to Heraklion and into the future
The Heraklion Info Point (The information office for visitors of the city of Heraklion) is an innovative information and tourism promotion centre for Crete that runs on interactive systems developed by the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH). Its aim is to offer integrated and sound information to the thousands of visitors who arrive at the city of Heraklion in search of information on the city, the island and its heartland.
Discover Crete through “live” interactive maps and albums, “travel” to various points of the island using the latest technological means (you may even have your photo taken a as souvenir)! Play with the interactive Phaistos Disc and at the Table of Games which was specially designed for our little visitors.
