Knossos - Heraklion Market

A very interesting excursion, where myth meets history! Our first stop and main attraction of the day is Knossos, one of the most important monuments, which was capital of Minoan civilization (the first in Europe) and palace of King Minos (son of Zeus and Europe). There you will hear the fascinating history of the unique building which stands there for almost 5000 years. Right next to Knossos is the today's capital of Crete Heraklion. Full of interesting Venetian monuments, with a beautiful and oriental fishing port, with one of the most interesting museums worldwide and a variety of shops and street bazaars this town will charm you. The trip is offered on Saturdays too, so you have the chance to visit the big market of Heraklion and buy anything you wish in very low prices!!!
