What to expect

If there's one must-see in Crete, it's the Palace of Knossos. Just south of Heraklion, it's the island's most popular attraction. And for good reason - it's absolutely fascinating. Plus, there's also a guided walk around Heraklion, the island's capital.

It was the hub of Crete's Minoan civilisation and where the fearsome Minotaur was said to have lurked in a labyrinth. Your guide will explain the myths surrounding Knossos Palace and its kings as you explore its treasures, including the throne room, royal apartments and frescoes. And with fast-track access, there's no waiting around in queues.

It's then time to head to Heraklion. See the Venetian lion fountain and the loggia on a guided walk around the city. You'll then have free time to wander about at your own pace. Maybe you could go shopping at the market, walk round the harbour walls or visit the 16th century Venetian fortress. A great day of discovery.
