Spend a full day exploring Crete with a local guide. Visit Psychro Cave, the birthplace of Zeus, and a platanus tree that is according to local legend, the oldest tree on the island. You’ll also tour the villages of Mochos and Krasi and enjoy a traditional Cretan lunch in a local restaurant.

For all those interested in ancient history and / or architecture / archeology this is a great place to go. To be clear it’s still being excavated so don’t expect much of a show! You can however get a real feel for how the place would have looked a millennia ago.

It's very interesting to see the ancient history of Crete and if you are nearby I would suggest a quick trip to Falasarna ancient city, however don't make the trip especially.

Looked an interesting site, even just looking in from the boundary fence. Signage appeared to indicate that site can be accessed, but we could find no information on opening times.

My friend and I walked from the beach bar to this place following the dirt road in the late afternoon. We didn't see many people or cars on our way, but when we arrived to the site, which was closed, a man appeared between the bushes "greeting" us. He must have heard us talk.

My advice is: go there if you have the time, and are around. But not worth to go on purpose, as the site opens only in the mornings. You will see most of it from the fence, though.
