Chania City and Old Venetian Harbor
The westernmost side of Crete, Chania is a wonderful place for vacations. The Town is a romantic place to stroll around, with Medieval architecture, elegant mansions and a wonderful Venetian port, the most famous spot of the town. Chania’s Venetian Harbour was carefully built in the 14th century for commercial purposes and for protection against pirate raids. Apart from the beautiful old town and the cosmopolitan areas of the north coast near the city of Chania, the prefecture of Chania is ideal for day trips where you’ll visit exotic beaches and will see remarkably natural landscapes. You will also travel to different periods of the island’s rich history, on the occasion of the monuments that you will encounter.
