Getting to Knossos is easy. City bus 2 runs from Iraklio's city centre – from Bus Station A or from outside Hotel Capsis Astoria – every 15 minutes. Tickets cost €1.70 if purchased from a kiosk or vending machine and €2.50 from the bus driver. If driving, from Iraklio or the coastal road there are signs directing you to Knossos. There is free parking across from the souvenir shops, but the spaces fill quickly.
