Tour Detail

Crete’s former capital is perhaps its most idyllic town. With its intertwined Venetian and Ottoman legacy, there’s an east and west magic to its grand harbor, narrow lanes, sea walls and port buildings. Minoans lived near Chania harbor at Ancient Cydonia, and today’s beach lovers head to the modern seashore at Nea Hora. There are waterfront cafes to relax at Koum Kapi, the old Turkish quarter. Chania’s archaeological museum traces the history of this part of Crete since Neolithic times, and it’s housed in a 16th-century Venetian church that’s an impressive sight in itself. If you like ships, head to the Naval Museum in the headland fortress, once an Ottoman prison, and the Venetian shipyard museum by the harbor. Both museums exhibit maritime displays from the Bronze Age onwards, including memorabilia from WWII. You’ll also find displays of Byzantine jewelry, mosaics and artifacts in the fortress’ Byzantine museum. Wander around the Old Town, and walk the fortified walls leading from the fortress for views of the old quarter. Amid the church towers are the minarets of mosques, along with the great Venetian arsenal, a synagogue and the excavated remains of Ancient Cydonia. The first stop in Chania will be for lunch at one of the city’s most delicate restaurants. You will try a full lunch of high-quality and relax, before you keep on wandering the streets of Chania Old Town. After you have wandered around the town of Chania, we will go to the area of Akrotiri. There we will visit the Tombs of Venizelos – the tomb of Eleftherios Venizelos, the most prominent politician of 20th century Greece. The Athens International Airport is name after him. The view of the city from there is amazing! We will finish our tour there with a coffee and a desert at one of the most famous places in Chania, with stunning views. After this last break we will take the road back to our hotel.
