Knossos in detail

Flights & getting there

Getting to Knossos is easy. City bus 2 runs from Iraklio's city centre – from the bus station or from Plateia Eleftherias – 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's free parking across from the souvenir shops, but the spaces fill quickly.
