GET FROM HERAKLION TO KNOSSOS PALACE BY CAR
After renting a safe and reliable vehicle from RentCar.gr, you are more than ready to explore the countless beauties of Crete. If you choose to hire a car from Heraklion airport, undoubtedly the first place you should visit is the archeological site of Knossos, which is located just seven kilometers away.
The palace of Knossos is the most important attraction of Crete and not by chance! It is the center of the first palace civilization in Europe, the Minoan Civilization that was continuously inhabited from 7,000 BC until Roman times. According to Greek mythology, it was there that Theseus killed the Minotaur. The set of luxurious buildings with impressive architecture design spreads on a verdant hill with vines, olives and cypresses.
Leave safely the rental car from RentCar.gr in the free parking lot of the archeological site. It would be better to get there in the afternoon, to avoid the hot sun and the huge queues of visitors. Paying the same ticket, you can visit both the Palace of Knossos and the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion, where the famous frescoes and many other findings of the palaces are exhibited. Information about opening hours and tickets can be found on the website of the Archaeological Museum. If after that visit, you want to leave the car in the city, no problem!
