  • At 10 km from Rethymno on the road to Spili, on the right, marked by special signs, health services and parking, is located the archeological site of the necropolis of Armenians with ticket office (open 10-18, €2 per person, free under 18 years). The conductor actually is not the most likeable but no matter the main entrance opens onto a series of numerous rectangular pits, many of which are "dromos" meaning corridors, some with steps, which lead through an opening in the rock in small underground rooms where in the late Minoan period (13th century BC) were used as burial sites; If there are 220 vary in size, the most beautiful are located on the left side of the complex and are characterised by a much longer and deeper dromos and a subterranean room bigger and more complex equipped with internal pillars. The free visit can last around 30 minutes and the total distance is less than half a kilometre with little elevation change. Highly recommended as a stop.

  • Very nice place, far from the tourist flow. Necropolis of about 200 graves entry is 2 euros for adults which is not at all excessive. Information panel in Greek and English at the entrance to the site and that's it. Located about 8 kilometres from Rethymno.

  • On the road from Rethymno to Preveli monastery with a small pointer. Turn on it literally 50 meters from a road gate on the territory of the archaeological reserve. Entrance fee! 2 euros for adults and children for free. At the entrance hangs a map of the graves. The territory of graves is not very big. Approximately 300 * 100 m Only about 50 graves. Burial is a small stone cave which can be down the stone steps and pass the open stone tunnel. Naturally inside nothing survived. But the site is very informative.
