Stop At: The Palace of Knossos, Knosos, Crete 714 09 Greece

South Propylaeum: The cup bearers and procession frescoes at the South Propylaeum, depicting scenes from the everyday life and the ceremonial activities in Minoan Crete, are a great insight into the aesthetic ideals of the time. Follow the evolution of Minoan fashion, learn about the popular hairstyles of the people and discover the beauty products that they used to touch up their look.
West Magazines: At the West Magazines, where the storage facilities of the palace are located, you will gain an understanding of the well-organized bureaucracy that supported the palace organization, the earliest forms of linear writing, as well as the Minoan economy and trade networks.
South Entrance Corridor: Discover the copy of the “Prince of the Lilies” at the South Entrance Corridor and gaze out on Mount Juktas, perfectly framed by the eroded walls of the palace. Picture what rural life must have been like in Minoan Crete as you learn about the agriculture of the early Cretans, travel and transportation of the time and the ritual significance of the mountains in their religion.

Poor experience - the only advantage was to skip the queue

There was no audio with the tour even though it stated that there was. Skipping the queue was great but I bought it for the audio so was very disappointed when there was none
Easy way to see a popular attraction

Easy way to see a popular attraction. Audio tour was difficult to download, but informative. Would definitely recommend. Also, you do not have to go exactly at the time listed on your ticket. My ticket said 0900, got there at 0815, and they let us in no problem!

It was a very interesting site, and the guided tour and skip the line tickets worked out well. Highly recommended!
