Spinalonga, full day professional guided coach & boat & lunch included

Spinalonga, full day professional guided coach & boat & lunch included

From Elounda you take the boat and cruise along the bay to the island of Spinalonga (sometimes called the island of Tears). The guided tour on Spinalonga will both fascinate and haunt you as you learn the tragic history of this island which was once a Venetian fortress and was then the isolated home of many lepers up to 1957 when it was cleared by the Health Authorities, leaving the place uninhabited. The Venetians constructed a very impressive fortress with forty cannons which has been guarding the strategic bay of Mirabello since the 15th century. We get on board again and head for the sandy bay of Kolokitha. Here you will have time for resting or swimming and have lunch. The boat will take you back to Elounda to take the coach. Agios Nikolaos is famous for its picturesque ‘bottomless lake’. You will have some time to discover this pretty little town on your own, to stroll around the shops or just relax in one of the popular cafes and watch the world go by.

This is where European civilization began during the era ruled over by the powerful King Minos.
