In the partially reconstructed ruins of what may or may not have been a palace at Knossos, you could see that the ancient Minoans had running water and a sewage system. You could also see that the complex of rooms could be very confusing ...
... of the Oracle fame. Sadly, the caves that released the gas that used to get the oracle high for prophetizing have been closed off, so no free high or visions of the future for this guy. Still, pretty amazing standing on the spot were an ancient druggie or seer (depending on your point of view / spiritual inclination) decided the fate of empires.
