Chania Guide

 

 

 

Crete is a rich island which offers visitors almost everything through a wide range of daily choices.

Chania, more specifically, combines unique natural beauty with tradition, picturesque alleys with vibrant town life, culture with lacey beaches and emerald waters. Which means that each visitor at Chania has the choice of relaxing and going on romantic walks in the Old Town or explore the Cretan landscape through short excursions.

 

 

 

 

IF YOU ARE KEEN

on exploring & discovering

 

Or if you simply need to get closer to nature, then Crete is the place for you! In the prefecture of Chania, you can organize expeditions to one of the gorges (with careful organization and guidance by a local), enjoy swimming or diving in various beaches (you have a wide range to choose from) or visit the only natural fresh water lake on the island of Crete: Lake Kournas.

 

IF YOU ARE

more into the vibrant town life

 

In that case, Chania is your destination! The Old Town of Chania stands out because of its characteristic Lighthouse and the Venetian port. Whichever time you find yourselves in these two sights, you’ll be enchanted by the view. The Chania town atmosphere will ‘warm’ your soul while a walk to the Municipal Market of Chania (commonly known as the ‘Agora’) will make you feel the Cretan hospitality.

In the traditional shops of Chania, you will find souvenirs for your beloved (a favourite holiday practice) as well as local natural beauty products or local food stuff which you can take with you on your return home.

 

  • A walking guided tour of the Old Town
  • A walk to the aristocratic district of Halepa and a visit to the family home (now museum) of the famed Greek politician Eleftherios Venizelos
  • Enjoy the sunset over afternoon coffee at the Venetian Port
  • Evening walks through the picturesque alleys with the small taverns

  • Enjoy the Cretan cuisine at traditional taverns with traditional music which will put you in the atmospheric mood of the Old Town of Chania
