BOOK
Creta Greece
Come and discover one of Ancient Grecce’s most fascinating treasures,the Palace of Knossos. Dating back to 1900 BC,it was the hub of Crete’s Minoan civilization and where the mythical Minotaur was once said to have lurked in a labyrinth. Learn all the legends of this ancient civilization,the oldest in Europe,as you explore the treasures of its most famous palace including the throne room,royal apartments and frescoes. Then proceed to the beautiful old town of Heraklion for a guided tour and the chance to look around the old harbor and browse the market for souvenirs. For culture and history,tours don’t get much better than this!

According to Greek mythology King Minos dwelt in the Palace of Knossos and constructed a giant labyrinth to contain his son,the ferocious half-man,half-bull Minotaur. Learn the legend of the Minotaur and how it was finally killed by the Athenian hero Theseus as you walk around this fascinating archeological site. See the throne room where ancient kings once ruled,walk through the royal apartments that housed monarchs and their families thousands of years ago and admire the beautiful frescoes that have been preserved through time.

Then head down to Heraklion,Crete’s picturesque capital for a mini-guided tour. Take in the city walls and the old harbor,which was dominated by a 16th century Venetian fortress. Explore the city at your own leisure and take the opportunity to peruse the local market stalls and shops or relax with a drink in the many pretty waterside cafés.
