Description

Just south of Heraklion, Knossos is the island’s most popular attraction, and for good reason –  it’s absolutely fascinating. This is one of our excursions that gives you a local flavor of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.

The hub of Crete’s Minoan civilization, it’s where the fearsome Minotaur was said to have lurked in a labyrinth. Your guide explains the myths surrounding Knossos Palace and its kings as you explore its treasures, including the throne room, royal apartments and frescoes. 

Kitted out with a tablet, a handy app uses the very latest technology to bring all the monuments to life in stunning 3D.  You’ll also be taken around the Archaeological Museum and with fast-track access to both, there’s no waiting around in queues.

It’s then time to head to Heraklion, Crete’s capital. See the Venetian lion fountain and the loggia on a guided walk around the city before having some free time to wander about at your own pace where you could go shopping at the market, walk round the harbor walls or visit the 16th century Venetian fortress.
