Palace of Knossos Guided Tour

After meeting your guide at the selected time at the Palace of Knossos, you'll begin exploring this ancient residence of King Minos. The palace complex is formed of more than 1500 interconnected rooms, a confusing structure that will no doubt remind of you of the Minotaur's Labyrinth...

Discover the legend of the mythological being that terrorised the Cretans thousands of years ago. Who shut him in the labyrinth? What did he eat? Who killed him and how?

As you delve into the island's mythical past, you'll wander through the chambers of the royal family, the sanctuaries and the rooms that were home to the treasures of Crete. The Palace of Knossos is the most significant vestige of the Minoan civilisation, considered to be the most sophisticated ancient culture in Europe.

One particular example of the civilisation's advanced development is the palace's complex sewage and water system. You'll also get to see the original throne of King Minos, which remains standing even 3,500 years later. After making the most of your tour around the Palace of Knossos and admiring its spectacular frescoes, your visit will come to an end.
