Your stay in Crete and in Heraklion city is never complete without a visit to Knossos Palace. With this full day tour from Heraklion you will visit Knossos Palace which is the most visited place of Crete, the birthplace of minoan civilization and the origin of the myth of labyrinth . It contains the largest of the Minoan palaces which dated back to 2000 B.C. that has been partially restored. The ruins and rebuilt parts belong to the last and largest Minoan Palace, the labyrinth of Knossos. Built 3700 years ago has over 1000 pieces. This palace was even a health system and was decorated with impressive murals. The throne of King Minos is still intact. 

Continue the day tour with a visit to the capital of Crete, Heraklion. The town of Heraklion is the largest urban centre of Crete and the economic centre of the island. You may see many places of interest which will include the recently restored Venetian castle and some other nice Venetian remnants – the Famous Morosine Fountain and the pretty restored Loggia, along with many shops and sidewalk cafes.

The duration of the tour was a lot of hours, but we have learned a lot for the mentality in Crete and for the minoan history! I felt like living in the history! The guide Christina explained everything to us and we know all the secrets and the history of this super island!!!!

We enjoyed the trip and had a first class guide for the palace of Knossos. Glad that the trip was in the morning as it was very hot as we were leaving.
