Driving along the north coast to the east, we pass the Cretan capital Heraklion and reach Agios Nikolaos, a nice little town with its picturesque sweet-water lake. The lake played an important role towards the end of the world war 2.
After our visit to the enchanting little town of Agios Nikolaos, we continue to Elounda, a little village, well-known from the movie “Who Pays The Ferryman”. There we stay also for our lunch break.
Our last destination is the little island of Spinalonga. Sailing by a boat from the port of Elounda, we reach the islet and visit its imposing fortress, well-known as the last European leper colony.
At the end of the interesting day, with a lot of nice memories, we take the same road and go back to Rethymno
