The history of Crete is closely intertwined with the Minoan period. Through a tour at the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion, we admire the unique Minoan art masterpieces and share stories about life in the palaces of Knossos, Phaistos and Malia. We get to see one of the greatest mysteries from the Minoan period – the disk of Phaistos – and complete our visit with representative works of art from up to the Roman times. The Archaeological Museum of Heraklion is one of the largest and most valuable museums in Greece, and one of the oldest and most important in Europe. So, a visit is definitely a must. And it is followed by a refreshing coffee, accompanied by delicious local delicacies; the perfect ending to a perfect morning.
We close our day with a swim at a beautiful nearby beach. After a day full of stories in the heart of the city, we choose a beach not far way, to spend a relaxing afternoon. Aghia Pelagia, Ligaria and Mononaftis are only a few of our options.
