Overview of your Heraklion tour:

Spinalonga, a small island off the coast of Crete, holds a fascinating history as a leper colony in the early 20th century. Once a Venetian fortress, it later served as a refuge for those afflicted by leprosy. The island's well-preserved ruins and Venetian architecture provide a glimpse into its past. Together we will explore the haunting remnants of the leper colony, including abandoned buildings and the island's defensive structures. Spinalonga offers a poignant journey through history and a unique perspective on the resilience of the human spirit. Next highlight of this tour is a visit to the picturesque town of Agios Nikolaos. Nestled around the picturesque Lake Voulismeni, the town's origins date back to ancient times, with evidence of Minoan settlements in the area. Over the centuries, Agios Nikolaos has witnessed the influence of various civilization from the Byzantines to the Venetians and Ottomans, shaping its unique character.
