Excavated and restored by archaeologists at the turn of the 20th century, Knossos Palace provides insight into one of Europe’s most advanced Bronze Age civilizations. But the true significance of the site can hard to fully grasp without an in-depth knowledge of the Minoans. On this tour, learn about the Minoans people and the mythical Minotaur while exploring the vast palace complex with a licensed guide.
