“December 15th, 1548

Our sleep has just interrupted by the ship's siren. This time it doesn't call us for work. Immediately I jump out of the bed and see my partner Berto's smile: "Finally my friend! We have arrived! Can you believe it;"

We have arrived! I get out of our cabin and run to the deck. The largest port of the Venetian fleet in the Mediterranean lies in front of my eyes! "

Giovanni, a young Venetian soldier, takes us back to the past, when Crete was the "Venice of the East". Through the pages of his diary, we discover the old port of Heraklion, the stone giant and all the secrets of the Venetian fleet.

Are you ready to disembark with Giovanni?
