Located on the Greek Island of Crete, Chania Town is recognised for its 14th century Venetian Harbour and proximity to the picturesque azores of the Mediterranean Sea. During your time in the city, spend your days wandering around the marina on foot to scope out delicious restaurants, harbour views and the Lighthouse of Chania, which dates back to the 1500s. Alternatively, the city's archaeology museum offers a detailed look into the region's past.
Chania is also home to some of Greece’s best beaches. Suited to both couples or families with children, Balos Beach features a sheltered lagoon with calm waters and white sands. Elsewhere, parasol and watersports are always available at Elafonissi, Falassarna, Frangokastello, Georgioupolis, Agia Marina, Agioi Apostoloi or the Golden Beach.
Chania Town’s medieval alleyways are where you’ll find some of Crete’s best restaurants, offering views of the Old Venetian Harbour and sunsets across the Mediterranean Sea. One of the region’s stand out restaurants is the Well of the Turk – a historic venue serving a Greek and Middle Eastern cuisine of slow-cooked meats made with organic extra virgin olive oil and a selection of herbs and spices from around the world. It’s here, where you’ll also be able to sample some Greek cheesecake. Afterwards, take a walk around the harbour among other holidaymakers and if you’re still peckish, take advantage of one of the many street food vendors selling souvlaki and gyros.
