KNOSSOS AND PSILORITIS

Ancient history and mountain life

Knossos and Psiloritis: Eye Travel minibus tour


Knossos, one of the highlights on Crete! In the morning, you and our Eye Travel guide, drive in a minibus (max 8 pers) to the Minoan Palace Knossos.

Your private professional guide gives you a tour you will never forget. After this cultural experience we leave 'civilisation' behind and drive into the mountains to go to the highest village Anogia on the highest mountain Psiloritis on Crete and to pass the rest of the day in beautiful nature.

Our first stop is a snails farm, where the owner welcomes us and give a tour in the habitat of the snails. Here you can drink a coffee and of course tasting real homemade snails Cretan way.

An other Cretan specialty is honey, so we going to see the bee life live. On our way to the highest mountain village, which have a very ridge history, before lunch we visit a local glass making gallery.

In Anogia you can enjoy a typical mountain lunch. After lunch we drive back downhill to the area known for his orange fields and we visit the El Greco museum in the mountain village Fodele (the mannerist painter El Greco, 1541–1614, who grew up in the village).
