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.

We hiked from the top to the bottom. My wife and I did it with our 2 and 5 year olds. The 5 year old loved it. The 2 year old had to be carried most of the way. It took 3.5 hours with a picnic stop. All rockfall has been dealt with and the way is clearly marked. The bar at the bottom called a taxi. Wait time was only 10 minutes and cost a was 35 euros for a 7 seater.

The gorge is beautiful, but for sure not a shady walk, as it was promoted in our travel guide book. We went in with 2 toddlers and the passage was more than 6 hours (3 according to the book). A lot of ups and downs, tiny paths and etc. The taxy in the end cost us 30 euro. Nice place, much shorter compared to Samaria, but still do not recommend to people with no experience.

This gorge is nearly as beautiful as Samaria but shorter and without the long set of uneven steps leading in to it. Its also a lot quieter so you wont be in a long crocodile of walkers. The footing is uneven, particularly where the winter's rain has washed out the path. The cafe at the end is a welcome sight and servers a good lunch. Take a taxi back to the top for about 20 euro, depending on how many go (the cafe will phone for you and put 6 of us together making it only 10 euro each. Well worth the visit.

A very picturesque gorge walk. Not too strenuous although much is walking over boulders. Many up and down stretches but suitable for the whole family. €2 entrance fee. At the end there is a cafe for well deserved drinks. You can either walk to sougia or wait for bus to sougia then back to the start of the gorge. A taxi back to the start costs €20 to €30. Not too bad even on a sunny day as there is plenty of shade.

If you are looking for beautiful scenery and only a few people this is for you! Entrance is a few Euro's but well worth it. Paths are generally good, some clambering and a few detours where the path has been lost to rock falls, but not enough to detract you. Lots of shade on the way down. We only didn't go all the way down as we had a car at the top, however would love to do the whole gorge sometime. Wear good shoes, lots of water and enjoy!
