We invite you to watch the short film that we made during our last visit to Knossos . We used the fact that in the summer season the opening hours were extended, which allowed to avoid visiting these excavations in the crowd of other tourists. Late afternoon is, in our opinion, the best time to visit the palace in Knossos .
Going deep into the Richtis Gorge located near the town of Exo Mouliana, it is hard not to resist the impression that it enters a land completely different from the rest of Crete. The abundance of water and shade mean that even at the peak of the tourist season, this place is full of lush vegetation. So obvious rust colors dominate in other places of Crete, they are completely absent here because their place is replaced by lush greenery.
New National Road is a peculiar communication backbone of the northern coast of Crete. A significant part of tourist traffic is carried out through this road. However, due to the difficult mountainous terrain, not all areas of the island are as well connected as the northern part of Crete. The wild south coast of the western part of the island has its own maritime equivalent of this land route - it is a permanent ferry connection connecting the most important towns of this region.
