enjoy a visit to Knossos Palace testifying the glory of Minoan civilization, discover the archaeological Museum of Heraklion city, hosting many items coming from Knossos and explore Rethymno, a charming small city

The Palace of Knossos is not simply foundations and ruins, but rather a complex of rooms, halls, passages, myths and legends, all dating back to 2500 BC, a time when most peoples of the world were still living in caves!

The journey takes you early in the morning eastwards along the coastline to Heraklion, the island's capital.

Around 09.30 we will arrive in Heraklion and will go first to the Palace of Knossos. You will be led through the labyrinth, galleries and rooms of the Palace where the power and vitality of a long era is so strikingly present.  Visit the Royal Palace of King Minos, the depths of the labyrinth and the vibrant colours of the frescoes and witness the abundance of evidence of how people lived and worked during the great Minoan civilisation.

A tour through Heraklion Archaeological Museum follows, one of the most important museums in the world, which houses all the original pieces from Knossos and other sites including frescoes, intricate gold jewellery and engraved linguistic tablets of the period. Free time for lunch, as well as to explore Heraklion city, follows.

We then depart for the picturesque city of Rethymnon where upon arrival you will be guided through the old town.  Return to Chania about 18.00.
