Accommodations: Porto Elounda Resort
Palace of Knossos
Enjoy a resort breakfast before boarding the coach to see the Palace of Knossos. This extraordinary palace was restored in the early 1900s, with the grandeur and complexity of the structure kept intact despite its having suffered thousands of years of foreign invasions, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. It was woven into Greek mythology, most prominently in the myth of the heroic youth Theseus who killed the Minotaur. Join your Adventure Guides for a guided visit to the site.
