The Roman were in Crete 67 before J.C. so this ruins are very interesting, to see columns, rest of an Apollo temple, you hear the singing birds between foundations of houses and an entrance hall of a basilika, and you see flowering exotic flowers.

Hi! Sorry cannot help much. We were taken there by some acquaintances and I never took much notice of the opening times.
