The project is related to the creation of a route map of interest of the old city of Heraklion. Specifically, printed communication material was created in order to be made available to visitors, providing essentially all the necessary information they need to browse all the points of interest of the old city of Heraklion. This tourist map depicts 5 characteristic routes in the old town of Heraklion and includes the basic information on the city’s tour and its monuments.

This is an important project, which will contribute effectively to the improvement of the services provided, resulting in the safe and effective tour of the visitors to the old town of Heraklion.

Specifically, with the creation of a route map of interest of the old city of Heraklion, it is achieved:

  • Identifying the area of ​​the old city of Heraklion.
  • The visibility of its particular historical and cultural characteristics.
  • The recognition of the old town as a tourist destination.
  • The projection of the unified character of the old city.

The map of the old city includes and describes the cultural routes of the old city as well as the points that are sites for marking and informing visitors. Its scale and size were chosen in such a way that all of the above elements are distinct and the map is functional and practical. In addition, it includes an orientation sketch of the broader coastal area of ​​the city of Heraklion from the airport to the Stadiou area.
