Knossós: Royal Apartments Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

The royal apartments occupy four floors of rooms built into the hillside above the river. There are light wells to provide the circulation of air and lighting in the rooms. A flight of steps leads to the apartments, which are linked by a network of passages and corridors. A screen separates the Hall of the Double Axes, which was probably the Guard Room, from the King's Room containing a wooden throne. The Queen's Room is lit by a light well and decorated with a copy of the Dolphin fresco; a tiny bathroom adjoins it.
