The trip was very interesting and well guided. One could decide in Heraklion whether one would like to go to the Archaeological Museum or have free time. So there's something for everyone. Knossos was really very interesting and the guide was very well informed and explained everything very well.

Your experience

Highlights

  • Visit the palace of Knossos, one of the most important archaeological sites worldwide
  • Discover the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion and travel to the past of Crete
  • Get to know the city centre of Heraklion and the modern life on the island

Description

Visit the impressive palace of Knossos, which is one of the most remarkable archaeological sites in all of Greece. Explore the former center of one of the most powerful civilizations of the Old World and learn more about the characteristics of the Minoan people. Let us guide you through the excavations whose legends and history make the site an important monument. See the restored small palace, the royal tombs and the royal villa and follow the historical traces of an extinct civilization.

You will also discover the historical museum of Heraklion, in whose modern rooms the Greek past becomes tangible. While the Palace of Knossos shows the floor plans of the buildings and the big picture, here you can see the details of the everyday life of the inhabitants of that time. Here, archaeological finds from all over Crete, from old pottery, jewellery, weapons to coins, come together to make history tangible for you. At the end of the tour you will visit the weekly market, where you will have enough time to stock up on fresh products from Crete or souvenirs
