This private tour starts from Heraklion
This excursion journeys along the north-east coast and first visits the cosmopolitan resort of Elounda. Continuing to the village of Plaka, we will embark a traditional wooden fishing boat, and sail to the island of Spinalonga; fortified by the Venetians it is also known as the Leper Island, as that is where lepers from Crete and the rest of Greece were quarantined until 1957. We will walk around the island and explore the restored premises. Sailing back to Plaka we will drive to the town of Agios Nikolaos, for a stroll around its charming center, with colorful cafes around the lake and with nice little shops. Our next stop will be at the 15th-century church of Panagia Kera, to admire its magnificent frescoes, and we then will drive to the picturesque village of Kritsa, stretched by the slopes of Kastellos mountain, for a walk around its colorful alleys. Late afternoon return at the hotel.
