體驗簡介

During our meeting, we will walk around Mochlos, the village which is famous for the numerous archeological sites of Minoan times (3000-1200BC).

Starting at our meeting point in Mochlos parking area, where guests will come with their own car, we will walk to enjoy the view of the settlement and the surrounding plain from above, introduce ourselves to Cretan natural and man-made landscape and start our trip in the past.

We will visit the secret prehistoric cemetery of 14-13th century BC, have a tour at the remains of Minoans houses and workshops of 15th century BC and discover -from a distance and with the help of maps and pictures- the minoan town of Mochlos islet of 3rd and 2nd millenium BC: the buildings, the tombs, the artifacts, the people.

Extra: Weather permitting and if guests want to, we could visit the islet by boat (5€ extra per person for the boat, which is not included in the price).
Note: We will not visit organized archeological sites.

Covid 19 extra: Due to Airbnb Experiences rules during the covid 19 pandemia 1) we should all wear face mask during our meeting and 2) the fruits and beverage picnic I am offering in the experience has "moved" to a local restaurant, which can follow better the relative rules.

I am an archaeologist and I have chosen to live in a small village in East Crete as a member of the local community, an amateur farmer and an explorer of the surrounding historical landscape. The experience I offer is taking place in this area, where I am working the last 16 years. I have experience in archaeological survey, excavation and monument’s restoration, scientifically focused in medieval topography, architecture and wall painting’s ontology. I am specialized in cultural heritage management and thus, I love to share my knowledge about the history of land and people of Crete.

體驗地點

Mochlos, a rocky seaside settlement, was one of the earliest towns and a significant port of Minoan civilization (3000-1200 BC.). The archaeologists have been excavating here for decades, revealing different sites, unknown and unseen from the most of the area's common visitors. Artifacts of different materials, as gold jewlery, stone miniature vases, ceramic ritual objects etc are decorating today Museums of Heraklion, Agios Nikolaos and Sitia.

Passionnant!! Marianna est archéologue et nous parlait des fouilles auxquelles elle a elle-même participé. Elle nous a raconté l'histoire Minoenne avec passion...puisque l'archéologie EST sa passion et qu'elle adore la faire découvrir. Un plaisir!!!! Pour tous ceux qui s'intéressent à l'archéologie...mais aussi tous les autres.

Our experience with Marianna in Mochlos was one of the best we had during our time on Crete! Communication with Marianna was clear and timely, she even made special arrangements to tour with us on a day that she did not originally offer. We really appreciated her generosity with her time and flexibility in that aspect. The time we spent with Marianna gave us a richer and deeper understanding of the Minoan cultural. The stories she told and details she added gave us a clearer picture of the life this culture led. We especially enjoyed the conversation we had as we had refreshments with the island as our back drop. The best part about this tour is Marianna's enthusiasm. Her passion for the area and people of Mochlos is very evident. We never would have had the same experience there without her guidance, expertise, and personal details. Marianna has a way of bringing the past to life and we feel blessed to have been able to share the day with her. This experience was a fabulous find and a tremendous value. Don't hesitate to include it during your time on Crete!

Now more than 30 years ago I first visited Crete, came more than 15 times and stayed two times for a half year in a little village near Makrijalos. I visit more than 30 minoan excavation and read a lot of this time. For personal reasons this year it was the first journey to Crete since 2003, for other reasons my first visit in Mochlos. The hours with Marianna there were so intensive, that I still so deeply impressed. In simple words, perfect supported by easy-to-understand sheets/printouts she guided me into the life, the time of the early minoan settlers, the Obsidian-Masters of Mochlos. This aspect of minoan history was mostly new for me, but in our good and clear communication we found many connections to my favorite topics, espacially Gournia, that you nearly can see from Mochlos. Marianna knew all my favorite reseachers, even if they are not so popular in our days. She gave me worthful Informations of the newer research results of the last ten years that I already not knew. Even in points, where we had different opinions we discussed this fair and I felt always an athmosphere of respecting each other. Thank you Marianna for this intensive hours - the dragonfly-necklage with this so small and so perfect designed dragonflys from Mochlos will remember me always to our wonderful, inspirering time in this blessed place.

This experience with Marianna was fantastic! It was unlike any experience I have had before. It was not your typical tourist attraction with a guide telling you things you could read in a textbook. Marianna shows you sites that she actually participated in excavating, and her stories about her firsthand experiences make the history come alive. 2 of the 3 spots we went to (within about a football field of each other) are not well known even to many locals, so it truly is special. You can tell that Marianna is passionate about her work, and I walked away with a deeper understanding of the history and culture of ancient Mochlos. Even though you don’t hear about Mochlos the way you do places like Knossos, it is definitely worth the drive to learn how significant Mochlos was in Minoan society (and to hang out with Marianna for the day!).
