Chania is a small, picturesque town worth getting to know, where you almost certainly stay longer than you intended, enjoying tasty food, the wonderful harbour, old buildings and many more.
Chania is also one of the two places you are most likely to see on arriving in Crete. Always the first thing you hear about Chania - the Venetian Harbour, the old port, the narrow shopping streets and waterfront restaurants.
The Chania harbour is wonderful and at any particular time of day the light produces a different result, creating a "different place". This is the best chance to see some of the old buildings - of Venetian and Turkish design, that Crete once had across the island - many have since been destroyed by the ravages of war and plunder.
