Forget Alcatraz: If you want an island with some history, how about Spinalonga, off the coast of Crete?

This island is a triumph to survival in the early 20th century, and was used to isolate people affected by leprosy between 1903 and 1957. On this fascinating tour you'll learn about its life before that, and witness fortresses dating from the Venetian period.

Cruise to the island from Crete and learn the facts from your guide on board, before stopping at Spinalonga itself. Visit the Interpretive Centre and discover the settlements of the victims. Stroll around the Venetian fortifications and learn all about the long history of the island. On the way back, you'll see other points of interest in the Bay of Mirabello, including the legendary Pirate Barbarossa's cave!
