WALKING THROUGH CHANIA TOWN

Let’s have a walk around the small streets of Chania.
Everyone visiting Crete should definitely spend a t least a day at Chania and stroll around the small alleys full of souvenir shops, traditional tavernas and small hotels.
Buildings of Venetian, Ottoman and Neoclassical architecture make visitors to discover something different at every corner.
Despite the fast-growing tourist industry, Chania managed to preserve its original colors and historical character. 
There are plenty of places to stop, sit down and relax to enjoy the views in every direction – the open sea, the harbour, the town and the snow capped mountains. 
Despite the fast-growing tourist industry, Chania managed to preserve its original colors and historical character. It has a specific Mediterranean spirit which its worth to feel and experience.

The Venetian Harbour with its lighthouse and the old town in the centre have bestowed on Chania the reputation of the most picturesque city in Crete, welcoming thousands of visitors each year.
You could say that Chania consists of two towns, the old and the new, which coexist in a harmonious whole.
The new town embraces the old and spreads outwards ever wider. Its layout is fairly good near the centre and it’s easy to find your way around.


Chania is characterized of intense intellectual life.  A multitude of cultural events take place each year (exhibitions, festivals, theater and music performances, visual arts etc.)

Chania is an ideal alternative to Heraklion for accessing and exploring the island. The city is not that busy and has direct access to the other major cities via the highway on the north side of the island.


The town is definitely one of the top best holiday destinations for every month of the year.
