We visited on a hot afternoon and were surprised at the size of the site. We found it to be difficult to negotiate to the various tombs due to the lack of identifiable routes. A map / information would have been really useful as part of the admission cost. The tombs themselves…
This has to be one of the most spectacular sites in Crete. You actually get to wander in and out of the tombs. It costs very little but make sure you wear your walking shoes. You could be walking for two hours or more.
This covers quite a large area. We were surprised that you could walk anywhere on the site. Some of the tombs could be roped off to protect them from the wear of lots of feet. Well worth a visit.
We walked here because it was close to our hotel and although not a great deal to see was none the less a pleasant experience, it’s a large site with plenty of walking but is very peaceful and a great place to come to if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
Really good to walk around and explore the old tombs and buildings constructed from sandstone. Lots of tombs still brilliantly intact. Feels a bit like you're on the set of an Indiana Jones film!
