The ancient town of Knossos is located about 5 kilometres south of Heraklion. I had already heard so much about this historical site since my early school days, so I absolutely wanted to go.
In the Mediterranean, Crete is the largest of the Greek islands. Those who spend their holidays here should plan not only beach holiday. Here you stumble on almost every corner of Greek history.
Greece is so rich in interesting destinations that a short holiday is never enough to discover even a fraction of them.
