We came quite early (around 10 am) so we were lucky and didn't have to wait in long line to get inside. But when we were leaving around noon, the entrance line was really huge, so use the first bus in the morning to get...More
Amazing place in beautiful setting. Because some of it has been reconstructed you get a sense of the grandure. A bit expensive but very reasonable when combined with Museum in Heraklion. Easy access by bus.
Knosos palace is stunnig archealogical monument. There is a lot to see. Walls of the palace are decorated with the frescos. Knosos is surrounded by hills and view is beautiful. If you ever visit Crete, Knosos is must see.
This is a must see for anyone interested in ancient history but it is spoiled by the amount of interpreted reconstruction that was undertaken. You are never quite sure how real what you are looking at is. That being said it is an important and...More
Bored of walking around the shops? Well why not walk around some rocks. It is interesting but hard to tell what is real ruins and what is fake. The coffee shop is real expensive so get a drink before you go in.
We walked around here for about an hour. The ruins were interesting but there was alot of walking up and down stairs. In places we just took pictures from the top instead of using the stairs. For another euro you can also vusit the archeological...More
Telling the truth there are a lot of stones, but... Walking amoung them a unique feeling. The pained walls, the columns, the pavement from ancient time. You imagine the builders and citizens and a magic get you and travel back to 5000 years. You see...More

I found this site interesting because I had studied it at school and had a tour guide. If you were going solo it would not have been as interesting as our guide was very knowledgeable. The tour guide was allowed to jump the line to...More

We arranged a private tour guide before we left for Crete and found him great value in terms of cost and the benefit of his knowledge of the site. We arrived at 09:00 ahead of the organised tours and had the site to ourselves for 30 mins or so. His knowledge of the site gave us insights that we would not have appreciated had we toured it on our own with a guide book. After Knossos he took us around the Archeological Museum where again he added value to the experience for us with his knowledge of the key exhibits.
