KNOSSOS 3 KNOSSOS 2

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.

Then, continue further to the East of the island towards the famous resort of Elounda where you will make a boat cruise towards the island of Spinalonga.

Today, the uninhabited island is a popular tourist attraction in Crete. In addition to the abandoned leper colony and the fortress, Spinalonga is known for its small pebble beaches and shallow waters. The island can easily be accessed from Elounda and Agios Nikolaos. Tourist boats depart from both towns on a daily basis. There is no accommodation on Spinalonga, meaning all tours last only a few hours. Boat trips from Elounda take approximately fifteen minutes while trips departing Agios Nikolaos can take almost an hour.

This small island houses an  impressive Venetian fortress and was a leper colony until 1950s. In the afternoon, enjoy free time in the pretty town of Agios Nikolaos famous for its small lake in the center.
