Αnother way to explore the historical city of Heraklion.

This is a historical excursion, where you and your family (Children 6 + years old ) or groups of friends, will discover the fascinating history and fortification of Heraklion Town, through games, clues and visits with a qualified guide, specialised in families and children.

The tour transfers us to Heraklion in 1669 during one of the biggest sieges in European history. Heraklion is in devastation and the fall of the Crown city is eminent.

How do people manage to survive under these circumstances? How do they defend themselves? What is being prepared by the administration? Is there a traitor?

Adults and children can follow us in this labyrinth and discover all the clues.

During the day we will walk up to the city’s Walls, meet people and pass from the major monuments of the city.
