As your guided tour takes you through the fantastic ruins of the ancient complex, you’ll be amazed as you glimpse parts of the original labyrinth and try to visualise its captive, the mythical Minotaur. The discovery of Knossos proved the Minoans were Europe’s earliest civilisation, and surprised the experts with their technological advancements.

Then enjoy a winery tour at the Boutari, Fantaxometaho Estate. Built in expansive vineyards, it’s one of the most modern and impressive wineries in Crete. You’ll see the production facilities and wine cellars, and watch a multimedia presentation featuring the history of wine making, along with an introduction to the art of wine tasting.

You’ll enjoy a sample of their delicious wines, accompanied by a plate of Dakos – a Cretan dried rusk, soaked in olive oil and topped with fresh tomato and cheese.
