this shore excursion will satisfy everybody: explore the highlight of Crete, Knossos archaeological site, the monastery of Kera Kardiotisa and conclude your tour with shopping in Heraklion, which is the largest city of the island

Enter the coach and take a drive of approximately 1 hour to arrive in Knossos. During this tour you will be taken back 4.000 years to the time of the oldest civilization in Europe. The Minoan Palace of Knossos, centre of the Minoan Civilization, will leave you breathless as you wonder over the technology and facilities of that period.

After Knossos take a drive to Archanes Village where you will enjoy a delicious light, Greek meal and relax in one of the local restaurants.

After your lunch, re-board the coach to travel to Dicti Mountain and the Lassithi Plateau (850m). Visit Kera Kardiotissa Nunnery, a 14th century Monastery housing late Byzantine frescoes.

You will then drive back to Heraklion where you will have 1 hour of free time for shopping to the interesting shopping center of Heraklion, which is one of the biggest towns in Greece. After shopping re-embark the coach and drive back to the port and the ship.
