Agios Nikolaos

4
A tour of Agios Nikolaos leads visitors through charming neighborhoods with white washed houses, squares with taverns, steep pedestrian streets, and sea as a backdrop, ideal for exploration on foot. The serene little town sits partially upon the ruins of the ancient Dorian city, serving as a hub to a dozen small fishing villages and farms. Agios Nikolaos tourism thrives mostly thanks to sandy beaches, small-town feel, and the mixture of Minoan, Byzantine, and Venetian influences on the town's architecture visible in archeological remains, Neoclassical buildings, and Byzantine churches. A small lagoon lake in the center of the town famous for its deep waters is its biggest attraction, but many Agios Nikolaos vacations include a ferry ride to an old Venetian fortress on the island of Spinalonga. Agios Nikolaos is in Lasithi Prefecture. Plan your trip to Agios Nikolaos and other Greece destinations using our handy Greece trip planner .
