Knossos and Lasithi Plateau Full-Day Tour

What You'll Do

  • Visit the Palace of Knossos and immerse yourself in the impressive labyrinth of the former Minos kings
  • Explore the Lasithi plateau in the high peaks of the White Mountains and enjoy the fantastic views
  • Climb up to the birth cave of Zeus or ride on a donkey up to the cave

What to Expect

Visit the Palace of Knossos during your stay in Crete and learn more about the changing times in ancient Greece. As European culture still dawned in the darkness of history, the Minos kings ruled over the Cretan people with humanity and justice in the 1400 rooms of the labyrinthine palace and bestowed the island almost 2000 years of peace.

Then drive along the Serpentine Road to the next destination: the Lasithi Plateau, located at about 850 meters high, surrounded by the high peaks of the White Mountains. The Lasithi Plateau is one of the main areas of cultivation of Cretan agriculture and is known for its windmills, sporadically covered during summer to move groundwater to high altitude for irrigation.

By the Psychro Cave, a path leads to the birth cave of the father of gods Zeus

By the Psychro Cave, a path leads to the birth cave of the father of gods Zeus, an impressive stalactite cave. You can either ascend by foot or by donkey for an extra charge. Leave the plateau over the Ambelos Pass and hike through the village of Krasi back down to the coast.
