Full description
Immerse yourself in the history of Crete and visit one of the most famous archaeological sites. The Minoan Palace of Knossos, first built in 2000 B.C., was the residence of the legendary King Minos. The building, with an estimated 1,300-1,400 rooms, was excavated around 1900 by Sir Arthur Evans and partially reconstructed.

Afterwards embark on a short journey into more recent history and discover the old town of Heraklion with the well-known Morosini Fountain in Lions Square, the Loggia and St. Mark's Basilica. Immerse yourself in the unique atmosphere, hike through the narrow streets, visit the market, browse the local shops or visit the Venetian port with its fortress. Explore small parks, street cafés and many historic buildings and fountains from Venetian and Turkish times.

After visiting the excavation site see a very special performance. Once more experience Minoan culture with 3D video and traditional dancers wearing original costumes. Eat small appetizers prepared according to traditional Minoan recipes to bring history back to life.
