Out of all the stops we had, the Palace was definitely my favorite. It gave us a real look way back in history. There were a lot of information boards around. Take a hat if going in the summer it's very hot and it gets very busy.
The day trip was well structured and had great times. Mostly enjoyed Knossos, amazing to know that the Western Civilization had actually started from her about 9000 years back. Cheers!
