There are many Greek myths they will get fascinated by listening them, the place is an archaeological site where most people wish to visit when coming to Crete!
The “Arcaeological Palace of Knosssos “ is the place where your kids will find answers on how and from where European myths start, the first games took place on Crete, where in Mythology first Olympic games took place here, the story about “the abduction of Europe” that born God Dias or Zeus, Sarpidon and Radamanthy!
