    There were very few tourists around. I would have got a ticket without standing in line. It was also my first attempt with an audio guide on my mobile phone. Unfortunately, I couldn't download the app because I haven't tried it yet. Wouldn't have been possible either because data roaming was blocked on my new cell phone. We then had a German guide and received extensive information.

    Please note: people under the age of 25 do not pay any admission to Knossos ... a booking for the whole family does not always make sense

    It's great not to have to queue
