Chania

The picturesque canvas in Northern Crete!
Chania is one of the most inspiring locations in Greece. The Venetian Harbor, the old port, the narrow shopping streets and waterfront restaurants are iconic sights and attractions that represent this magical city!

Chania’s highlights include old-fashioned buildings, museums, churches and crafts shops, offering all manner of interesting local products, souvenirs and gifts. Chania and the island of Crete itself has rich culinary tradition, thanks to the island being a superb place for agriculture. The traditional drink tsikoudia is one of many Cretan culinary delights!!

The Romans, Turks and the Venetians all inhabited the city of Chania, at various points in its history, leaving their traces in the city’s unique architectural design. The famous lighthouse, the Venetian walls, the crystal clear water of the beaches nearby, the stunning Samaria gorge to the south, and the exceptional local cuisine all contribute to the magic of Chania as a travel destination!
