Visit the world-famous Minoan Palace at Knossos, the home of the legendary King Minos who gave his name to Europe's oldest civilization. According to Greek mythology, the monstrous Minotaur-half man, half bull-lived at Knossos and fed from human flesh and bone. He was eventually slayed by the brave and mighty Athenian prince, Theseus, within the hidden labyrinth. After a guided tour of the Palace we head to the  Archaeological Museum of Heraklion where your guide will be happy to accompany you. The final part of the day is free time in Heraklion itself, A City of contracts where ancient history and cosmopolitan modern life combine to create a charming mix.
