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 great bunch if youths who monitor the turtle nests all summer long and provide a rescue for any injured. There's noi better site than seeing the release if one that's recovered. They have a stall by the harbiur, stop by and buy somethiung from them to help raise funds!

They are at th beach every morning, checking for new nests and monitoring those already there. They also have a stand in the city. Loved talking to volunteers. They are young, real enthusiasts. You can support the turtles in several ways. If you love animals it is an absolute must.

Walking at Sunrise on the beach in Missiria Rethymnon I met some volunteers of Archelon. They were digging up a nest. After some time it turned out that the nest contained eggs. They decided that the spot was safe enough and left the eggs. Markers were placed around the nest to safeguard it. They do an excellent job trying to protect te sea turtles from the tourist beds.
