Afternoon in the Labyrinth of Minotaur in Knossos and the capital of Crete – Heraklion – the intimate tour
The legendary Knossos, the mythical labyrinth of the Minotaur and the bustling Heraklion. An expedition for everyone who wants to get to know the world from myths.
Surely you have heard the myths of the Minotaur, Daedalus and Icarus, or Ariadne’s thread more than once. All these myths and legends are closely related to the most important monument in Crete, the palace of Knossos, where over 4000 years ago, the oldest European civilization, the Minoan culture, was initiated.
Visiting this mysterious place calls unforgettable feelings in the newcomer. You will feel as if you have stepped back in time, long before the period of ancient Greece. You will see that the palace of Knossos, King Minos or the labyrinth of the Minotaur are not only part of the legends and myths. All this refers to an extremely important and distant story that has influenced the world’s history, culture and art.
The program of our trip is different than the standard one. Unlike everyone else, we invite you to visit the Palace of Knossos in the afternoon. When the cicadas don’t make so much noise anymore, so our visit to the residence of King Minos will be more pleasant. Also the sun is more delicate to us, it is also quiet, peaceful and mysterious, and the atmosphere with doubled strength activates your fantasy and imagination.
Walking with us around Knossos, you will find out why King Minos took over the Cyclades, what punishment met his unfaithful wife – Pasifae, how the story of Ariadne and Theseus’ romance unfolded, and what happened to Daedalus.
And that’s not all! You will also marvel at Minoan frescoes, jewelry, pottery, sculpture, and tablets with mysterious Linear A and B writing.
And when all the mysteries about King Minos are dispelled, we will go together to Heraklion. During our walk, we will see charming streets and interesting places. It is a city that combines history with modernity, is full of life all year round and offers many attractions. Where the Venetian defensive walls safely surround it, and the Archaeological Museum hides unique treasures of Minoan art along with a collection of gold jewelry, one of the most beautiful in the world, which you will not find anywhere outside of Crete.
