Take in the charms of Chania, a picturesque city with a fascinating history nestled on the northwestern shores of Crete in Greece. Chania’s atmospheric Venetian harbor takes center state, highlighted by an Egyptian designed lighthouse on the pier edge, across from the Firka fortress. Waterfront taverns serve myriad local specialties while hosting live Cretan entertainment after sundown. Chania’s Old Town charms with meandering cobbled alleyways through various quarters around the main Eleftheriou Venizelou Square. Adorned in vibrant blooming shrubs, neighborhoods of well-preserved and colorful historical buildings showcase the beautiful medieval architecture, while themed museums and ancient monuments tell stories of yesteryears. Find local produce at the bustling marketplace called Agora, or hit the hidden workshops that make Chania leather goods among other Cretan crafts. Nearby, there are many scenic beaches with adventurous approaches, for basking under the Greek sun. On the outskirts, several walking trails take you through farms and orchards, or the botanical park in Crete’s mountainous interior.
