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.

This oliven tree is very old. We drove her by car. And that was a little museum there. And a branch from this oliven tree was used in the olympic games in 2004.

It's a modest museum, but it is interesting to see as it offers information about The Monumental Olive Tree of Vouves - the oldest tree of its kind on the island and one of the oldest in the world. It's free to visit. It showcases tools used for the cultivation of olive trees, traditional home equipment and harvest tools, tools used for woodworking, storage jars, goat skin aski, and much more. Take your time to see it, and end with a bite to eat at the tavern next to the tree. The family running it once owned the tree and the buildings of the museum.

Basic but interesting collection, mostly out of donations of local families. Again, no fancy, no entrance fee, kept simple and authentic.

You'll walk through the small museum in about 10 minutes. But there are some interesting things, if you're interested in olive oil history! Museum entrance is free of charge. Outside you'll find the famous olive tree of vouves and a taverna.

A well maintained attraction of great interest , next to full blossom olive trees over 3,500 years of age, that still produce one of the finest varieties of olive oil.
