"Knossos" Knosos by grayfo

Knosos Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 91 photos

The Minoan Palace of Knossos is Crete’s premier tourist attraction and lies about 5 km south of the centre of Iraklion along the road to Archanes. A bus service (KNOSSOS) is available from Iraklion main bus station by the port. Official guides are available and it is a simple task to find one taking an English speaking party. An alternative is to wander at random; it’s not hard to find most of the highlights simply by watching where the guided tours are stopping for explanations. A note of caution, try to avoid going on a hot day, as the ruins are short on shelter.
