Stop At: Rethymnon, Rethymnon, Rethymnon Prefecture, Crete

Breakfast in a cafe shop with beautiful view

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: The Palace of Knossos, Knosos, Crete 714 09 Greece

Knossos, Crete is the largest Bronze Age archaeological site on Crete, probably the ceremonial and political centre of the Minoan civilization and culture.

It has been substantially and imaginatively "rebuilt", making the site accessible to the casual visitor in a way that a field of unmarked ruins is not.

The Palace of Knossos is the largest and most spectacular of all the Minoan palatial centres, covering an area of 20,000 sqm. The palace had many storeys, it was built of ashlars blocks and its walls were decorated with splendid frescoes, mostly representing religious ceremonies.


Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Heraklion Archaeological Museum, Xanthoudidou & Hatzidaki Sts, Heraklion, Crete 710 02...
