Your experience


This is a great opportunity to visit the capital Heraklion and the Palace of Knossos in a short time. You’ll can create your own program. A stroll in the city of Heraklion will start up a perfect day like shopping in its modern stores, enjoying a coffee or lunch in one of its many restaurants or just exploring its superb medieval buildings. You’ll have plenty of time to combine the visit also with the newly renovated Archaeological Museum, which exhibits traditional architecture and preserves exquisite and valuable ethnographic and historical material from the ancient period of Cretan history. After you’ll continue your day to explore the most famous landmark of Crete, the Palace of Knossos, is the absolute “must” for everybody who decides to spend their vacation on our beautiful island. On one of the most impressive archaeological sites in Greece, we find the center of one of the most powerful civilizations of the ancient world and through the excavations, the legends and the history of the place we learn about its settlers: the Minoan people, the rulers of the Mediterranean. One of the most important archaeological monuments in the whole world. With its small palace, the room of murals, the royal tombs and the royal mansion, Knossos is probably the most significant token of a civilization that left such marks in history that can never be erased. The intricate structure of the palace corridors gave it the name Labyrinth, where, according to the myth, the legendary Minotaur used to live. The marvelous architectural plan, the use of rare and luxurious materials, the advanced techniques of construction and drainage system and the massive size of the palace of Knossos make it, even today, the most amazing sight on Crete.
