Knossos Palace - Museum - Heraklion City

Visit the most famous and popular of all places in Crete, the Palace of Knossos. Embark on a 5,000-year journey into myth and legend with your expert guide and discover the secrets of the oldest civilization in Europe, the Minoans. Enjoy a tour of the historic site, which covers 22,000 m2, 5 floors with 1,300 rooms, and hear all about the legendary labyrinth and the Minotaur (a half-human monster).

History and legends come alive on this day and it is a must-see during your visit to Crete.

From Knossos we will go to the capital of Heraklion, where we will visit the Old Market in the center of the city, the Lion Square, where there is also a fountain of the same name. You will also have the opportunity to shop in the center. Alternatively, we also offer a visit to the newly reconstructed Archaeological Museum, which exhibits finds from the ancient period. The old Market Street is still the place for "Herakliotes" - people who live in Heraklion. It is a place where they meet, talk and have fun every day. As you walk through the streets, you will catch the atmosphere of local life and feel the hustle and bustle around you. Then we will visit the Church of Saint Titus, which is a beautiful church and an important monument of the city of Heraklion.
