Ancient Palace of Knossos Tour

No visit to the town of Heraklion is complete without a visit to the "Ancient Palace of Knossos", the origin of the legend of the labyrinth, which dates back as far as 2000 BC. Spend a guided half day tour exploring this former residence of the legendary King Mino, situated in a small valley overlooking the river, only 3 miles (5 kilometers) from Heraklion town.

The Palace itself was a multistoried structure with many floors, innumerable corridors and colonnades, excavated and reconstructed by Sir Arthur Evans in 1900. It was the political, economic and religious center of the glorious Minoan Dynasty.
