A jump in the past

I participated with my family in this fantastic experience of returning to the Minoan past. In a large wooden hut and leaves we were offered warm typical sweets and fruit accompanied by raki and a Greek herbal tea. We then moved to the nearby stone amphitheater ”...more”
dominated by an age-old olive tree and witnessed a show that literally transported us back to Minoan times. Very good the dancers who have succeeded with only the body language and the sound of drums to understand the uses and customs of a time so far away. The ballet with the bull (naturally not real) and the colorful costumes of women are very scenic. Eventually the dancers involved me with other spectators, in a ballet that represented Arianna and her thread in the labyrinth .... very engaging. In short, an experience that I highly recommend. I only regret not being able to participate in the evening experience that includes dinner and a show. The duration of the daily experience is € 15 and the total duration is just over 1 hour, of which around 40 minutes of pure entertainment. The daily show is on Thursday at 15.00. And don't be afraid of suffering from the heat as the amphitheater is shaded by sheets and thanked by fans and water vaporisers.
