Please could someone tell me how far Ohrid is from Heraklion & what different options there are to travel to Ohrid. Links to any websites with information would also be much appreciated.
Ohrid is not on Crete, right??
Well, you can't thin about vacation in Heraklion. Heraklion is just the main city on Crete that has not much to ofer asaide of the big museums. You have to go around Crete, east, west or south of Heraklio and you will be in paradise. Not enough, you will love it but you will come back next year and next year ( there is something addictive about Crete)
Look at my site, I have lots of tips and photos. Crete is not big, if you rent a cheap car or hop on local bus for few euro you will get everywhere JUST DO NOT STAY IN HERAKLIO!!!
Ohrid is in Macedonia... so you better travel to Thessaloniki Airport in order to get there.
Otherwise it will take you a few days to get there ;))
