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.

The interesting part is not so much the plain which is nothing uncommon but the view from the hills around it and the vultures you might see. Together with Zeus and some local attractions a nice detour from lazy days on the beach but no reason to go there on its own.

Sunday 23rd August and we drove through this area on route to Psychro Cave (Diktaion Andron) The road leading up to the Plateau is steep and has numerous bends turns through mountainous terrain. It was quiet a surprise to see this vast area of flat land surrounded by mountains. It covers an area of 130 square kilometers and is around 840 metres (2,760 feet) above sea level. Situated at an entrance to the Plateau are it's ancient windmills. When working these were used for water and flour. We did take a wrong turning and ended up on a dirt track and we drove through fields. It gave us the opportunity to see workers in the field picking watermelons and drive past trees laded with red apples, pomegranates, courgette plants and other fruits and vegetables. The main industry of the Plateau is farming and agriculture as result it was often called the Garden of the Gods.

trip by car for 3 hours, no aim - just a yourney. There is no touristic target there, just see the area.

THE Lassithi Plateau on the island of Crete is a spectacular panoramic plain set high in the mountains in the eastern region of Crete known as Lassithi. Its is best recahed from Napoil just off the main and only motorway that runs through the island. Come off at Napoli which is between Ayios Nikolaos and Malia. Drive through the square and up following the signs and make sure you stop off at Onassis's restaurant the Marianna before droping onto the plateau itself. It is relatively easy to work your back to Ayios Nikolaos by just continuing to drive an follow the signs. You may also want to for amusement stop off at Psycho though and have your picture taken by the road sign of that name!
