Overview
You start our day visiting the most important archaeological site on Crete and the second most visited archaeological site of the country, the Minoan palace of Knossos, the mythical Labyrinth of Homer. Concentrating on the prehistoric era of the island, revealing its unique historic course and penetrating into its ancient prehistoric cult, arts and ritual practices, you will be visiting an amazing area of 22,000sq meters. Your journey into prehistoric times is being completed with visiting the biggest prehistoric collection of artifacts in Greece, the archaeological museum of Heraklion, where you can see at close range all treasures from all Minoan palaces and other Minoan areas excavated on Crete. This tour can be delivered with a minimum number of 10 guests.
