Visit the most famous and popular of all attractions in Crete, the Palace of Knossos. Join your expert guide on a journey of 5000 years, into myths and legends and learn the secrets of the oldest civilisation in Europe, the Minoan. Enjoy a guided tour of the historical site that covers an area of 22.000 m2, on 5 floors with 1.300 rooms and hear all about the legendary labyrinth and the Minotaur (the half-human monster). This day brings history and legend back to life and is a must see, on any visit to Crete.
Driving from Knossos, we reach Heraklion city, where we will visit the old market in the town Centre – the Lion’s square – where you will have the opportunity of shopping around. We also alternatively offer a visit to the newly renovated Archaeological Museum which exhibits traditional material from ancient period. The old Market Street is still a place for ‘Herakliotes‘ – the people that live in Heraklion, to come every day to meet, talk and have fun. As you are walking on the streets, you will grab the atmosphere of being a local and feel the buzz around you. Afterwards we will visit the Church of Saint Titos which is a beautiful church and an important monument for the town of Heraklion.
