Skip the Line: Knossos Palace and Archaeological Site Entrance Ticket

30 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 was expecting a little more. It took us 2 turns around the old town to find it. There was a sign post but we had missed it. And the house only had a piece of paper taped to the side wall to identify it. It has been fully renovated and is a private dwelling. However, it was not the reason we visited the town so did not spoil our trip.

The house is easy to find in the old town, but it is not very impressive and the town clearly does not think much of it as it does not even warrant a plaque. When we visited someone had printed off a photo of Napoleon and sellotaped it to the front door, otherwise we could have missed it. If you are wandering around the town its worth a 5 minute photo, but I certainly would not make a special trip to see it, it really is an anti climax.

The house is a little difficult to find, I advise to follow your phone map. Definitely worth the walk if you’re staying in Ierapetra. I cannot understand why it has not been made a museum yet.

They took care of the house but not enough to make it attraction of Ierapetra still fascinating that someone like Napoleon slept there for even one night.

We visited this building whilst in Iepetra. Yes it is derelict and yes there is scaffolding around it. However the builders were there doing a complete refurbish which they hoped to have done by end of May. This is an historic building which was once someone's house and should be viewed as such. It is not a museum. Napoleon only stayed here for one night on his way to Egypt but it has great character because it is part of the old part of Iepetra and stands amongst all the refurbished properties. If you cannot see it for what it is don't visit and don't write damning reiviews just because you can't image what it may have been like.
