On a Mission: Maria’s Trip to Knossos

At Clio Muse Tours, we pride ourselves on providing immersive and enriching cultural experiences for our users. As part of our commitment to offering up-to-date and accurate content, our Tour Creation department constantly evaluates and adjusts our tours to reflect any changes in the sites we cover.

The Manager of the Tour Creation department, Maria, recently had a journey to Knossos and the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion in Crete.
Her mission? To ensure that our tours align seamlessly with the latest adjustments made to these archaeological sites.


The Changing Landscape of Knossos and Heraklion

on a mission marias trip to Knossos

Archaeological sites are dynamic spaces, continually evolving as new discoveries are made and preservation efforts are undertaken. Knossos, one of Crete’s most famous ancient sites, and the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion, which houses invaluable artifacts from the region’s rich history, were the exception to this rule. As the space arrangements within these sites underwent modifications, certain areas became inaccessible to visitors.


Maria’s Field Trip

Maria set off on an exciting expedition to Knossos and Heraklion to address these changes. Her goal was to experience the sites firsthand, verify the alterations, and gather the necessary information to create an updated version of our tour. Equipped with her expertise and a keen eye for detail, Maria was ready to dive into the depths of ancient Crete.


Exploring Knossos

Arriving at Knossos, Maria was greeted by the awe-inspiring remnants of the Minoan civilization. The ancient palace complex, renowned for its intricate architecture and mythical legends, had undergone space arrangement adjustments to enhance the visitor experience and preserve the site’s integrity. Maria carefully observed the new exhibition format, paying close attention to the altered pathways and restricted areas. Her purpose was to ensure that our travelers could navigate the site smoothly, experiencing the grandeur of Knossos while being informed about the recent changes.

She went to cross-check that these changes don’t affect the stories of the tour and the paths the tour gave. By doing so, Maria gained insights that would allow us to provide our travelers with an accurate and captivating audio tour, guiding them through the museum.
