Discover the ancient scenery and myths of Minos, Ariadne, Theseus, the Minotaur, and the Labyrinth on this family-friendly adventure. This unique educational activity explores the roots of the Minoan civilization with some of the most popular Greek stories and myths. In addition, it'll prepare your family for a future visit to the archaeological site Palace of Knossos if you so choose.

The day's activities were inspired by the great writer and philosopher Nikos Kazantzakis. His book, At the Palaces of Knossos, dives into the ancient Minoan civilization. With the help of interactive games and activities designed by experienced educators, your family will travel back in time 4,000 years. You'll "live" in one of the most interesting periods of time: Minoan Crete. To end your activity, enjoy a picnic lunch similar to the traditional Minoan diet.
