Excursion to Knossos Palace and Heraklion

Full Day excursion to Knossos Palace, archeological Museum of Heraklion and Heraklion sightseeing

We will visit the Palace of Knossos, which is not simply foundations, but a three story Palace complex of rooms, halls and passages dating from 2500 BC and the centre of the Minoan civilisation (when in most parts of the world people were still living in caves). This is the labyrinth where Theseus slew the Minotaur, and where history and legend go hand in hand. Afterwards we will drive to Heraklion, where we will have free time for lunch and shopping. In the early afternoon, we will visit the archaeological Museum and drive back to the hotel.
