Itinerary
The most famous landmark of Crete, Knossos, is the absolute “must” for everybody who decides to spend their vacation on our beautiful island.

On one of the most impressive archaeological sites in Greece, we find the center of one of the most powerful civilizations of the ancient world and through the excavations, the legends, and the history of the place we learn about its settlers: the Minoan people, the rulers of the Mediterranean. With its small palace, the room of murals, the royal tombs and the royal mansion, Knossos is probably the most significant token of a civilization that left such marks in history that can never be erased.

The intricate structure of the palace corridors gave it the name Labyrinth, where, according to the myth, the legendary Minotaur used to live. The marvelous architectural plan, the use of rare and luxurious materials, the advanced techniques of construction and drainage system and the massive size of the palace of Knossos make it, even today, the most amazing sight on Crete.

After our visit to Knossos Palace, we are going towards Patsides to visit the Minoan Farm , a place where you have the opportunity to try their products and wander their estate fully planted with Cretan herbs.

We return to the city for a stroll in the center of Heraklion , accompanied by our English-speaking guide. Then, you will enjoy free time in the capital of Crete for shopping in its modern stores, enjoying our coffee or lunch in one of its many restaurants, visiting the Archaeological Museum or just exploring its superb medieval buildings.
