About Palace of Knossos
ADD TO LIST
It can be most easily accessed with a tour group, usually leaving the capital Iraklio. It can be reached if you drive individually, but the roads are long and winding, and sometimes confusing through the beautiful Crete countryside.

This was a fantastic historical site. It is best experienced with a tour guide who can share all of the site's historical significance, such as the tale of the Minotaur's Labyrinth and the Minoan Empire. The Theater courtyard is extremely impressive against the gently sloping hills in the background. You will no doubt see peacocks, cats and other animals roaming the ruins at their leisure.

If you like greek mithology it's a place you've gotta see. If you belive Minos really lived there it's a mystic expirience to be there. Well it could be... if not for the turists. Lot's of ruins, but you can tell apart chambers and some frescos are left. You can also see a road which is belived to be the first BRICK road in Greece.

It's a mythical place and a must-see! The ancient frescoes are amazing. It is a pity they had to put grills and gates so you can't actually see everything up close, but it is of course a tourist location and you probably wouldn't be able to visit it anymore without those gates and grills because it wouldn't be there anymore.
