For a day out that’s jam packed with history and culture, why not pay a visit to the Palace of Knossos? The labyrinthine ruins have been passed down in folklore as supposedly being the former home to the feared Minotaur, the half-man, half-bull creature that devoured young virgins.
This ancient site is a must-see for so many people who visit Greece every year. Guided tours of the palace are available if you want to make sure you know all there is to know about this attraction. However, you are also free to pay a visit and roam freely by yourself.
If archaeology is an interest, the Palace of Knossos is an absolutely essential sight to see. Countless examples of ancient Greek artwork still adorn the castle ruins and the structure of this palace, although fragmented, is still standing tall. Don’t miss your chance to pay a visit to one of the best-preserved palaces of ancient Greece.
