Victoria Hislop’s gripping historical novel The Island is the perfect summer read, set on the deserted Greek island of Spinalonga just off the coast of Crete. It’s a beautiful book, and a gorgeous destination – and there’s no better way to see it than on our exclusive cruise which will feature the author herself.
You’ll sail around Sicily and see the ancient temples at Segesta, as well as Taormina and the palaces of Palermo. You’ll arrive in style in Malta by pulling into the Grand Harbour of Valletta before cruising across to Crete and meeting Victoria, who’ll explain why she set her epic family saga on the deserted island of Spinalonga. She will also give an exclusive talk and Q&A, and you’ll receive a free signed copy of The Island. See the details
“I am excited to be joining the trip,” says Victoria, “as it takes readers to some of my favourite places in Crete and Athens, which have become like second homes to me in recent years.” There will also be other experts on board, who will give fascinating talks on what to expect from the eight included excursions.
The holiday also includes the stunning Greek island of Santorini and a two-night stay in Athens to visit its ancient sights including the Acropolis and Parthenon. It promises to be a journey that you will never forget…
