South Crete Sites with a Private Guide


We will start our day visiting the second biggest Minoan Palace of Crete, the Minoan Palace of Phaistos, the residence of the mythical brother of Minos, Radamanthis. A unique "prehistoric city" which has been barely touched by the restorations and dates back to 17. 000bc.

Our next stop will be the Minoan Royal Villa/ Country Mansion of Ag Triada where amazing Minoan and Mycenean prehistoric layers brought to light a big number of unique artifacts such as the famous Ag Triada sarcophagus and the boxing ryton.

An optional lunch stop in the small town of Matala could follow, a very artistic and renowned area by the hippies back in the late '60s.

Our final stop will be the old Roman capital of Crete, the town of Gortys, where the oldest Roman theater on Crete was excavated together with the oldest codified law system of Europe among other unique historic and mythical monuments.
