On this excursion you have the opportunity to visit the excavation sites of the Palace of Knossos, built in 2000 BC.

Knossos was the prosperous Minoan Capital and the residence of King Minos. Some believe, that the intricate Palace with its many rooms was the mythical Labyrinth. By discovering the site not too long ago, archeologists found the first of all advanced civilizations in Europe.

In addition to having a history of some thousands of years in the Neolithic, the Bronze Age, and the Classical period, the ruins in the age of archaeology (that is, since the 19th century) have undergone a history of their own, from excavation by renowned archaeologists, education and tourism, to occupation as a headquarters by governments warring over the control of the eastern Mediterranean in two world wars. This site history is to be distinguished from the ancient.

The tour is followed by a visit to the Museum of Heraklion, where you can see the largest collection of Minoan findings from Crete.
