Description

Let us take you to the ruins of Knossos before letting you enjoy some free time in Heraklion. This is one of the exclusive excursions that will give you the highlights of your destination in a unique way - authentic and responsible.

Knossos was once the center of Crete's Minoan civilization and, according to myth, the place where the fearsome Minotaur lurked in its labyrinth. The tour guide knows his way around and will captivate the children with his stories about the myths and kings. At the same time, the throne room is explored. There will also be a Minoer show featuring the "Weinernte" dance theater performance, a 3D film about the history of the palace and a rousing dance inspired by the myth of the Minotaur and Theseus.

After that, there will be a few hours to explore Heraklion, the capital of Crete. Here you can admire the Venetian Lion Fountain before shopping - the market is a must - or a harbor walk can be made.
