The oldest archeological sight of Crete is the Palace of Knossos and perhaps the most important for Minoan civilisation. Legend has it the palace was build as a labyrinth with 1500 interconnected rooms. It was build by the king of Minos to lock the Minotaur inside. The minotaur was a monster with a body of a man and the head of a bull. The story goes Minos developed the habit of sending his enemies inside the labyrinth to serve as a meal for the minotaur. Find Knossos just 6 km south of the cruise terminal and city centre. Catch the hop on hop off bus, public bus, taxi or shore excursion to it.
