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.

A fascinating place with a wide area to explore, and extraordinary views. We had the place to ourself and felt uniquely connected to the past. Wear sturdy shoes! Entrance is 3 Euros as of summer 2020.

We were not expecting that there was much to see at Kato, but there has been quite a bit of excavation, leaving some interesting areas to explore. Some walls are intact, meaning that visitors can see where shops and houses, etc. would have been. Now costs €3 (2020)

Very cheap €2 each, off the beaten track but worth a visit if near Kritsa or the area. On the hillside, very quiet, need decent footwear. Great views.

Other reviewers have commented on what the site is about, I just wanted to highlight a few things for other visitors. Sturdy footwear is essential, the paths are not flat! Loose stones, small and large can make walking tricky, so no wheelchair access You need good balance to clamber up the rocky places. The wind was up when we went, dust blowing about, but cooler! No guidebook, some boards around the site. How people ever made a home on this mountain I will never know, creating their homes around the massive rocks.

Truly awesome archeological site high in the hills. Its quiet and unspoilt. Entrance just 2 euro. But wear good footwear and not good for infirm or very elderly as its steep and unsteady underfoot. But if you can do it you will find yourself in an amazing city where you can climb the ruins and admire the amazing views. When we were there there were 4 eagles circling the site. Just truly special
