Chania City

Chania is unreservedly Crete’s most evocative city. At the Venetian port, the light house is the most familiar picture when someone refers to this city. This is one of the oldest light houses of the world that is still preserved. Restored Venetian townhouses have been converted into restaurants, cafes, boutique hotels and attractive shops. Small alleyways filled with visitors retain the exoticism of a city caught between the East and the West. Chania’s war torn history has left it with only a few monuments, but the city wears its scars proudly.
