What you can expect

It is the tour that reveals the secrets and life of the Minoans.

A flash – back to Crete’s ancient history and Minoan Civilisation as well as the spiritual strength which made Crete famous all over the world. Visit Europe’s first Palace and enter the spirit of the myths. Walking round the narrow corridors of the labyrinth construction you’ll have the opportunity to see all the samples and symbols of the progress and culture developed in Crete 4000 years ago as well as feel the mystical evidence of the Minoan grandeur. The myths come alive again after visiting the Palace of King Minos at Knossos.

After Knossos we will take a guided tour of our beautiful city of Heraklion, which is the capital of Crete. You may see many places of interests which will include the recently restored Venetian castle there is also one or two nice Venetian remnants – the Famous Morosine Fountain and the pretty restored Loggia, along with many shops and cafes.
