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.

Went to the Monastery and its a steep walking but worth doing it. Also went Pervolakia gorge, worth walking long but beautiful and a nice village at the end up in the mountains where can refresh and eat. It's around 3 hours walk up!
