Crete—The Palace of Knossos

IMG_7150 Rise and shine, it’s a beautiful day on the island of Crete.  From our port at Agios Nikolaos, we traveled about an hour to reach the palace of an ancient Minoan civilization.

The Palace of Knossos is an important archeological site consisting partially of the excavated ruins and partially of restored areas.  It attracts lots of visitors and was covered with people traveling alone or in groups with a guide.

The answer to yesterday’s trivia question, “What Paris attraction draws the largest number of visitors annually?” is Disneyland, Paris.

Today’s question is “What does the acronym ZIP stand for in Zip Code?  I’ll have the answer tomorrow after our visit to Santorini.
