An August 2004 trip
to Crete by Louisa W. Hansen
Quote: Crete, the southernmost island in Greece, is endowed with long stretches of beaches and cliffs on its dramatic coastline, and massive mountains and plains in the middle. Thanks to its warm climate, Crete is a perfect place for tourists who are sun hungry — especially those from Western and Northern Europe.

A tip about the tickets: it is more economical to purchase a combined ticket for both the museum and the ruins at the museum ticket booth (do it before heading to Knossos). It costs 10 euro as opposed to 12 euro if purchased separatly, and credit cards are not accepted at these ticket booths, so be prepared with cash.
The famous bull leaping frescoe from the Knossos Palace is in the permanent collection of the Heraklion Museum.
