The Minoan civilisation flourished on Crete for hundreds of years, only to disappear entirely around 1,000BC. Its story was rediscovered in the early 20th-century when the British archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans unearthed the magnificent palace of Knossos. Now it's your turn to explore this mysterious and magical site, where an expert guide will help you to separate fascinating historical fact from romantic Minoan myth. On returning to the present day, you will have time to stroll in bustling Heraklion, where you can admire the Venetian-era architecture and Byzantine churches, visit the colourful fruit and vegetable market and shop for Cretan souvenirs.
