A visit to Crete would not be complete without visiting the stunning Palace of Knossos. Believed to date back to 1900BC, the Palace was the epicentre of the local Minoan civilisation, as well as being the home of the infamous Minotaur. Visitors can enjoy guided tours of the palace with an expert guide, providing you with a wealth of fascinating historical information that makes the tour come to life. Tours include seeing the spectacular throne room, the vast treasures, and spacious royal apartments.
Visitors to Gouves are also highly recommended to take a visit to the island of Spinalonga, where you will find gorgeous pebble beaches and tranquil waters to cool off in. The island was famously used as a leper colony during the first half of the 20th century, where they were said to be well looked after in comparison to their treatment on the island of Crete itself. Due to its former usage as a leper colony the island is now uninhabited, meaning guests can only enjoy day trips to the island, and boat trips are available from both Elounda and Agios Nikolaos and take 15 minutes and an hour respectively. A wonderful place to unwind with beautiful scenery, the island provides visitors with a calm and peaceful setting that make it ideal for a relaxing day trip.
Have a fantastic time in Gouves!
