Set high on a hill Festόs certainly is impressive both for its ancient architecture and the views. Unlike Knossόs Festόs has not been reconstructed but on taking a few minutes and with the help of a guide book and map you can soon work out which bit is what and you will realise just how impressive this site really is. It is no wonder it is on most lists as the number one place to visit on Crete

Admission ?4 open 09:00 to 19:00

You should visit Agίa Triáda first as you can buy a ticket there covering both sites for ?6 something that was not offered at Festόs.

Address: Prefecture of Heraklion

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
