Very confusing ‘Directions’ inside the Knossos site to move to each point of interest. I’m sure a number of them were not even accessible to the public. We could not find them. Or have changed completely since the recording was made. The museum is simple enough to move around on your own but at least the recording means you don’t have to read the notes next to the chosen items.
