This is a beautiful venetian town which is very touristic in summer but worth seeing.
Chania (Hania) is a beautiful town. The old city, a maze of narrow streets around an old Venetian Harbour, is incredibly charming. It’s touristy, but not crushingly so. We loved it.
Distance from our villa: 24km The city of Chania is an ideal destination for accessing and exploring the island of Crete. The city has direct access to the other major cities via the highway on the north side of the island. The Venetian, Turkish, traditional and modern architecture coexist in harmony in the city of Chania, creating a unique and attractive scenery for the visitors. Archaeological sites, temples, squares and unique buildings adorn the attractive city of Chania. The old city of Chania constitutes a unique historical monument, for which have been made many efforts by the State and the local authorities to preserve and project its historical character. Despite the intense touristic development of the last few decades, the interventions, the disasters and the aspect of modern architecture, the old city managed to preserve its historical and its unique architectural character to a great extent.
Chania is well worth a trip with plenty of historical places to visit, shops , tavernas and many relaxing pedestrianised walks behind both harbours.
