A center of one of the most ancient European civilization – the Minoan, Crete grants the travelers the chance to visit numerous historical objects. The famous palace of Knossos undoubtedly is the pick, a must-see if you intend to make a journey to Heraklion. Over the past two millennia, the island has been under Roman, Byzantine, Arabic, Venetian, and Ottoman rule too, so there is plenty to see from any of those periods. Don’t miss the museums – except getting familiar of exciting facts and unique artifacts you will avoid the boiling heat of July or August for an hour or two if you are on Crete vacation in the middle of the summer.
