Idyllic beaches, unspoiled nature, imposing gorges and long history compose the mosaic of this beautiful place worth discovering.
The city of Chania is considered the most picturesque of Crete as you travel through time strolling in the Venetian port with the Egyptian lighthouse and taking a walk in the old town with its traditional architecture and Ottoman and Venetian monuments.
The alleys of the Old Town look like a labyrinth while on the right and left there are Venetian houses, fountains and impressive temples.
Go through the Jewish quarter, the Turkish neighborhood, Topanas and let the aura of the city captivate you.
The harbors at the port, Kum Kapi and Splantzia are some of the most important attractions.
In the historic Halepa, a suburb of Chania, admire the neoclassical villas with the well-kept gardens and visit the house of El. Venizelou.
Do not forget to take your walks in the Municipal Market and taste exquisite local delicacies in the local taverns and restaurants.
For a taste of history visit the Archaeological, Historical and Naval Museum of the city.
In the prefecture of Chania you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
What to say about Balos, the impressive beach with turquoise waters, white sand and exotic wild beauty.
Take a boat or follow the path and we are sure that the view will compensate you.
The tropical Falassarna with the riveting sunset and the turquoise waters, Elafonissi which is considered the Caribbean of Greece, Frangokastelo with the Venetian castle, Iligas with the gray pebbles and Kedrodasos, the secluded natural beach with the sun.
The reason for the excursion is Gramvousa, the uninhabited island that you can visit by boat. There you will find clear blue waters, a ruined fortress and the wreck of a ship near the shore.
Our favorite is Seitan Ports. Follow the inaccessible path and reach the wonderful bay with the vertical rocks that create the illusion that you are swimming in a lake. The list does not end here as in Chania you can enjoy the sea on over 90 beaches!
