Visit the architectural highlights of the area, from The Old Fort to the towering House of Wonders. Pass the former Sultan’s Palace, a Roman Catholic cathedral, and the waterfront Old Dispensary. Afternoon visit Prison Island - Board a motorized boat for Changuu, a picture-perfect tropical island with a tragic legacy of slave internment, prisons, and cholera.
