Special Greek Islands
The Ultimate Greek Island Bucket List.
Admire Europe’s Most Ancient Civilisation In Crete – Other than the gorgeous beaches, wonderful nature trails, pulsing nightclubs and delicious cuisine, Crete is also the former home of the Minoans, considered to be the first advanced civilisation in all of Europe. The Palace of Knossos, located in north-central Crete, offers proof of human activity on the island 10,000 years ago. In Knossos, where myth and history blend mystically, you can admire the first labyrinth in recorded history, where according to legend Theseus killed the Minotaur. [Photo: © GNTO/Y. Skoulas]
