The Labyrinth Tour with a Private Guide for Cruise Ship Travelers


We start our day visiting the most important archaeological site on Crete and the second most visited archaeological site of the country, the Minoan palace of Knossos, the mythical Labyrinth of Homer. We will be visiting an amazing area of 22. 000sq meters. A prehistoric "city", the place where the oldest European civilization started and flourished some 5000 years ago.

A sightseeing tour in the capital town of Crete will follow focusing on the unique Venetian monuments which the town offers, such as the Venetian fountain of Morosini, The Basilica of St. Marc, The Venetian Loggia, St. Titos church, the Venetian Port with the Fortress of "Koule" etc.

A walk inside the town's open-air market will make our senses awaken with its different and various smells, colors and sounds, while a traditional meal in one of the town's traditional restaurants will give us the chance to experience the Cretan cuisine in one of the places where the locals would go for a meal.
