First time to Greece - Crete or not?

I am planning my first trip to Greece summer of 2013. I plan to stay about two weeks. In addition to Athens,I would like to take a day trip to Delphi and one to Mycene I would very much like to visit Knossos and the Hereklion museum which I received an e mail from the director stating that part of it will be open in 2013. Would it be worth the island trip for these attractions? .

Hi there,

I would say yes, do go to Crete. And, there are far more ancient sites to Crete than Knossos:


If you plan on visiting Mycene do note that Ancient Corinth is on the way (from Athens) and Epidavros is also not too far way.
