CRETE OF THE MINOANS
A fourteen-night, four-centre tour of Crete by air-conditioned minibus, focussing on the monuments of the Minoan period.
September 28th – October 12th 2012, flying from Birmingham, UK.
Many visitors to Crete visit Knossos – and perhaps some of the other palaces, such as Phaestos or Mallia – but there are a whole host of
other sites from the Bronze Age which are much more rarely seen.
Apart from the palaces, this tour will visit several Minoan Towns, Sacred Caves, Peak Sanctuaries, Cemeteries, Temples, and numerous Villas, giving a clear picture of how the Minoan culture fitted into the dramatic Cretan landscape.
Based at four centres – Heraklion, Matala, Siteia, and Elounda – we are able to see a large number of sites at an easy pace, over
short distances, each day. The transfers between accommodation centres will also visit interesting sites and traverse spectacular scenery, adding to the comprehensive picture of Crete in the Bronze Age, (and in the periods following) gained by our party. You will feel that you have got to know Crete and its history during the course of this tour.
Price: £1750 (Single Supplement, £200). Deposit: £500. Ground Only prices available.
