If you’re planning a holiday on Crete then visiting the Palace of Knossos has got to be right up there on your list of the top ten things to do. Not far from Heraklion you can see the Minoan Palace, the most popular and worldwide known archaeological site of the island.
You will be blown off your feet when you see how many artifacts have been found and how amazing is the palace.
Before visiting Knossos you should have already read everything about Crete’s history.
I asure you that this part of Greece’s history is a really interesting one, knowing that Knossos is the oldest city so far discovered in Europe and therefore considered to be the birth of European civilization.
