Skip the Line: Knossos Palace and Archaeological Site Entrance Ticket

31 reviews
Nobody wants to waste vacation time waiting outside an attraction, especially in high temperatures. With this priority-access ticket to the Knossos archaeological site, you can breeze past ticket-purchase lines to explore what was the birthplace of Minoan civilization and according to myth, the seat of King Minos. Prebook your skip-the-line ticket, travel independently to the site, and roam the partially restored relics of Minos’ palace and courtyards independently.

I would highly recommend visiting the stables for the 2 hour ride with Beau the guide. She was very knowledgable of the area, and incredibly caring and attentive to the horses. You could instantly see that this was somewhere where animal welfare was a top priority. The ride itself features beautiful views and winding trails up the mountains - a perfect evening activity. Afterwards we decided to eat at the restaurant which was one of the best meals of our holiday, with an amazing view over the valley during the sunset. It is very affordable priced, with top quality service. Again, I would definitely recommend!

Had a lovely ride through the mountains lead by the lovely Bo (fantastic guide, lovely to meet you!). The stables are beautiful and most importantly the horses are cared for superbly. Was surprised to find the stables also has a restaurant, I did not eat here but it looks beautiful! Views and scenery are amazing, staff are caring and attentive. Cannot recommend enough! Thank you for a wonderful day Bo, Sabine and Manolis!

I really enjoyed the hack with Bo. She was very friendly and patient with me as I had not been on a horse in 4 years. The horses look healthy and well taken care of and the surroundings are lovely. I very much recommend it.

The hotel is clean and beautiful. The activity of horse riding looks great (but we didn't try it). The swimming pool is small and the hotel is far from the beaches (40 min and these are not the best places to go). Then, the yoga retreat was so bad that we left after 1 day. The hotel was not fair with us, lying on some refunding process... We don't recommend.

We are returning guests to this gem in the middle of Crete. Well maintained horses and tailored approach helped to boost my confidence with horses. My daughter (10) and I stayed in Velani for intensive horseback riding lessons and outside trek with experienced trainer Vladimir. His lessons were interesting and professionally organised with individual approach to get maximum out of the lesson. I was (and still am) very happy with the experience!
