We went on a weekday, & were the only visitors. Very clean & well presented & only €2 entry - my 12 year old son was free of charge. Much smaller than Knossos, but perfectly formed.

We very much wanted to visit this incredible Minoan site. When we got to it, engineers were working on it but we were permitted to enter. We were so lucky to be able to wander around this site with 3 large houses still very visible...More
