It's a very interesting place to go, there's a lot of history and you're guided along the way with detailed information about everything. Be careful about the days you go, we went on a hot day and it was tough but still pleasant.

Turned out to be a more expensive day-out than I expected. Euro 15 each (4 of us but under 18's free - nice - so Euro 45). Told you really need to use an official tour guide to get the best, we did Euro 10...More
This palace was abandoned about 3000 years ago and were in a terribly ruined state until re-discovered in the late 1800's. Many structures were rebuilt and even painted in the early 1900's and there is wide dispute over the accuracy. There are many frescoes recovered...More
