Itinerary

Noon pick-up

We will start collecting participants from pick-up points at noon.  Depending on the place of your hotel/apartment the bus drive duration will differ.

1st stop: The Palace of Knossos

Visit Knossos, the mythical labyrinth and ancient capital of Minoan Crete, 5000years ago. Our participants will enter the archaeological site with our representative in order to attend a guided tour and then enjoy some free time to take photos and admire the historic Minoan place.

People, have to wait in line, in order to receive their tickets and enter the Palace.

The waiting time is different during high-season months and peak times within the day.

Visit the capital of the Region and enjoy a guided tour of the center and the historical part of Heraklion, followed by 2 hours and 30minutes free time at the old market, the city center or visiting the archaeological museum. Participants will have plenty of time to walk, do some souvenir shopping or just take photos.

Optional: Archaeological Museum of Heraklion

For those who wish to visit the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion, the choice is optional and will be without a guide as the Covid Regulation for visiting the museum as a group makes the procedure complicated and time consuming for the participants.

End of the tour – Return to resorts

Embarkation in the buses and drive back to the hotels where we gathered participants at noon.

Depending on traffic and on the pick-up places of each one, the time of journey back to the hotel will differ.
