Description

Visit the Knossos Palace with a pre-booked e-ticket combined with a self-guided audio tour on your smartphone.

Enjoy a hassle-free visit to the grand capital of Minoan Crete, located 5 km south of Iraklion. The evocative setting and the impressive ruins of the palace, courtyards, private apartments, baths, storehouses, as well as the brightly-coloured frescoes, come alive through an engaging narrative that sheds light upon various elements of Minoan culture.

The cup bearers and procession frescoes at the South Propylaeum depicting scenes from the everyday life and the ceremonial activities in Minoan Crete are a great insight into the aesthetic ideals of the time. Follow the evolution of Minoan fashion, learn about the popular hairstyles of the people and discover the beauty products that they used to touch up their look. At the West Magazines, where the storage facilities of the palace are located, you will gain an understanding of the well-organized bureaucracy that supported the palace organization, the earliest forms of linear writing, as well as the Minoan economy and trade networks. Discover the copy of the “Prince of the Lilies” at the South Entrance Corridor and gaze out on Mount Juktas, perfectly framed by the eroded walls of the palace. Picture what rural life must have been like in Minoan Crete as you learn about the agriculture of the early Cretans, travel and transportation of the time and the ritual significance of the mountains in their religion.

This is an unmissable opportunity to experience what life in Minoan Crete must have been like following in Yishharu’s steps, the son of an aristocratic family who grew up in the peaceful years of Minoan naval power!
