Crete is the largest and the most rugged of the Greek islands. It is also the home of the great Minoan Civilization and the mythological home of Zeus. After a short drive through the town of Heraklion the tour will arrive at Knossos, the capital of King Minos and the centre of the magnificent Minoan civilization is located. Here, Sir Arthur Evan’s archaeological discoveries revealed a civilization dating back to 4000 B.C., when a great empire flourished on the island of Crete. Based on the wealth of artifacts that were found, Evans theorized that this was the site of the ancient Minoan Kingdom.

Our visit here will take us a step back in time and some 4000 years, 2000 BC. Knossos and her Palace, famous throughout the world through the myths of Europe, the Minotaur, the Labyrinth and These us, Daedal us and Ikarus, will open us a window to the most ancient civilization of Europe and its reality you can't miss. Knossos' architectural feats include several storey buildings (first in the world) with light wells and bathrooms, impressive pillars and an ingenuous drainage system, aqueducts, irrigation systems, paved roads and magnificent frescoes. These findings will be viewed in detail, as your guide will lead you on a journey of discovery to learn of the sophisticated culture that flourished thousands of years ago on this island. The Palace, decorated with frescoes and shields houses the Hall of the Royal Guard, the Hall of the Double Axes, the King’s Chamber with the alabaster throne, the Queen’s Apartment, beautiful courtyards and shrines.

Having visited this remarkable site, your guide will take you to the heart of Heraklion where you will be given some free time to explore its beauties combining the facilities of a modern city with the unique Greek islands’ ambience. In Heraklion you may wander around the city to see the Venetian buildings and castle, the impressive Cathedral, the fountains, the open street market etc. The visit to the town's famous Archaeological Museum, situated in the centre of the city, is a must. Heraklion’ Museum is considered one of the richest in the world with the most important finds of the Minoan era (5000 BC to 395 AD) displayed there. You will then meet your driver for the return journey to the Venetian lion-guarded port of Heraklion to rejoin your ship (or you will be driven back to your hotel).
