Hire a car in Chania
Dubbed Venice of the East, Chania is one of Crete’s most alluring cities.
Chania was greatly developed during the Byzantine era and then later glorified by the Venetians, who turned the city into a castle with surrounding walls. But today, beyond the Venetian harbour front, is a modern city.
The second largest city on the island, you’ll find innovative restaurants, Crete’s best shopping district and a historic harbour. As the gateway to the western part of the island, a short drive will bring you to an oasis of beautiful beaches and mountainous terrain.
Things to note
In the southern part of the island and more remote areas and you may still find unpaved gravel roads. If you’re not driving a 4WD vehicle be cautious of venturing onto these routes.
The island’s hilly and diverse terrain means lots of winding, narrows roads with sharp turns. It is common for people to drive down the middle of curvy sections of road, so be careful going around corners.
Road conditions are not always the most pristine and can change unexpectedly, watch out for potholes and loose rocks on the road.
It is mandatory to carry a fire aid kit, hazard triangle and fire extinguisher in a car. Check weather your rental company provides these tools.
It is common to come across flocks of sheep and goats, so be alert when driving through rural areas and be patient when letting them cross the road.
