Day 9

Heraklion 13 extra activitiesexpand image

heraklion

Decide how you want to spend this day. History connoisseurs may choose to partake in a full day tour starting at Knossos archaeological site before heading east to Crete’s ancient mythical sites like the cave of Diktaion Andron, believed to be the birthplace of Zeus and the 2,400-year-old Writer’s Plane Tree at the village of Krasi.

If you’d prefer some history closer to home base, you could skip the line and take the half day tour of Heraklion’s legendary sites. Be led by an English speaking local guide around the Palace of Knossos - once the center of Minoan civilization - make a wish at Morosini Fountain, and meander hidden Heraklion backstreets.
