6. Knossos Palace and Heraklion Town: Private Guided Tour
Start your day visiting the most important archaeological site on Crete and the second-most visited archaeological site in Greece, the Minoan palace of Knossos. Explore the sprawling 5-acre site as you traipse through the mythical Labyrinth of Homer.
Take in priceless historical insight from your personal tour guide into the prehistoric settlement, where the oldest European civilization started and flourished some 5000 years ago.
Afterwards, you’ll set off on a sightseeing tour of Herklion, Crete’s capital. Wander through the port town, focusing on the unique Venetian monuments such as the Venetian fountain of Morosini, The Basilica of St. Marc, The Venetian Loggia, St. Titos church, the Venetian Port, and more.
Marvel at the ancient city walls and the towering Koules Fortress.
Cap things off with a walk inside the town's open-air market for a true multi-sensory experience. Take in the vibrant smells, tastes, and sights, as your guide tips you off to the best stands to sample local Greek street food and produce.
Sated in mind and body, your tour will end at the Morosini Lions Fountain.
