The cruise ship arrives in late September at Agios Nikolaos at 8am and departs the same day at 6pm. So I presume that would allow maybe 8 hours to see and do some things. A guide is proposing a trip to Knossos, Iraklion, lunch in Mallia, the Selinari monastery, and lastly visiting the lake of Ag Nikolaos.
Having never been to Crete, I'm wondering if the experts here think that itinerary would be the best use of our time. Sure would appreciate your comments and insights. Thanks.
