Activity description

Embark on a captivating journey to explore the ancient Minoan palaces and immerse yourself in the art of pottery-making within a charming old mountain village.

This tour offers a perfect blend of ancient culture, breathtaking landscapes, and mouthwatering cuisine. After our visit to the majestic Knossos palaces, we venture into the highlands, where panoramic views of the Aegean Sea await.

As soon as you arrive at Knossos, an ancient site with a history spanning 8000 years, you step into a world that has been continuously inhabited. Knossos is home to the most prominent and renowned Minoan palace, said to be the residence of the legendary King Minos.

Next, we journey to an old pottery village nestled in the mountains, where you'll witness the traditional art of pottery-making firsthand. Feel free to try your hand at this ancient craft and discover the beauty that can be created through skilled handiwork.
