Short time in Crete

Jump to last reply

We will have a cruise stop at Aghios Nikolaos in Crete from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM on May 22nd. Some years ago, we visited Knossos and the fabulous museum in Heraklion, and although we loved them, we would like to see other places this trip. We would love suggestions on what we could do in such a limited amount of time. Our interests are history, archaeology, museums and beautiful scenery. Although we love seeing beautiful beaches, we won't be spending any time swimming. Also, we would prefer not to take the ship tours. So could you also tell us how we could get to the places you recommend? By taxi? Are there good local tours? Is the Palace of Phaestos worth seeing?
Thank you very much for taking your time to give us your suggestions -- We will really appreciate it!
