  • Knossos
    Crete, Greece
    One of the great archaeological sites of the world, the Palace of Knossos was built between 2000 and 1250 BC. It was a political and religious center of the ancient Minoan culture.
  • Ancient Akrotiri
    Santorini, Greece
    Known as the "Minoan Pompeii," this is one of the most important archaeological sites in the region. Still undergoing major excavations sheltered beneath a large shed, the site is not always open to visitors.
