The winding roads of the ancient city show the remarkable art, architecture and daily life of the Minoan people. The legends of Theseus and the Minotaur come to life in the Hall of the Royal Guard, the King's Chamber or the Queen's Apartment. There is free time to savour the beauty and explore the museums as well as visit the the cafes and shops. This is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the Aegean . See the Throne Room, the fresco of the Prince of the Lilies, the imposing Grand Staircase. The tour has a short stop in Heraklion before returning to the ship.

At the archaeological site you will be given a guided tour among the Agora, the Odeon, the Library of Celsus, the marble-paved main Street of Kouretes, the Baths of Scholastica, Trajan's Fountain, the Public Latrines, the Residences of the Patricians, the Prytaneum, the Temple of Hadrian.  The Great Theatre, built in the 4th century B.C., could accommodate 24,000 spectators and it is famous even nowadays for its acoustics.

Rhodes  (four night cruise only): Acropolis of Lindos and Citadel of the Knights:  Centuries of culture and layer upon layer of civilizations await to be discovered on the tour of Lindos and within the Acropolis of Lindos.  Follow the footsteps of heroes as you walk along the Knights' Street in the heart of historical Rhodes.  The seven lodges of the order, still bearing their original coats of arms, are displayed along the cobblestoned street . Sitting at the top of Knights Street, the Grand Master's Palace is well worth its name.
