Friday October 16

Transfer by bus from the Amirandes Hotel at 19:00 to the city of Heraklion (about 20 minutes drive). We will have a small walk in the centre and the sea front of the city and arrive for dinner at the tavern “The yard of Deucalion”, which is located just behind the Historical Museum of Heraklion, some steps away from the sea front. This tavern has a tradition of over 20 years in high quality of service. All meals are prepared with special care, using quality materials. The owner (Mr. Defkalionas) will wait for us with his accordion, to accompany our meal with sounds of favourite songs. Departure from Heraklion and returning to the Amirandes Hotel around 23:00.




Saturday October 17

1. Bus transfer and guided tour (with english speaking guide) in the archaeological site of Knossos (about 20 minutes drive from Hotel).
Departure by bus from Amirandes Hotel at 15:30 and return to the Hotel around 18:30


2. Transfer by bus from Amirandes hotel at 19:30 for dinner at the restaurant “PESKESI”, located in the city centre of Heraklion. “PESKESI” serves exclusively Cretan products, and the owners claim full responsibility for the cultivation and collection. The wines come from local producers. The location of the restaurant is an old Cretan House, with preserved architectural elements, strongly conveys a sense of the past. The history of the site (home of Captain Polyxigki, a hero of the writer Nikos Kazantzakis in his book “Captain Michalis”) further enhances the atmosphere.
Departure from Heraklion returning to the Amirandes Hotel around midnight.
