You will be picked up from your hotel and transferred to the town of Elounda. Enjoy a boat ride across to the island of Spinalonga. Spinalonga is a small island with an exceptional interesting history. The Venetian Fortress, which still stands, was built in 1579 and it protected the entire gulf. After the Turks left, the island became synonymous with human pain. In 1903, Spinalonga developed into a gathering place for lepers from all over Crete. There they waited patiently for death to liberate them.After this the boat is returning back to Elounda where you will have the opportunity for swimming in the beach and having lunch in a very good restaurant. In the end you can enjoy a short coffee break in the quiet, picturesque town of Ag. Nikolaos.
