Chania is an enchanting mix of ancient and modern architecture, vibrant nightlife and relaxed cafes, traditional cultures and bright new ideas. The Venetian seafront is one of the most beautiful aspects of this fascinating city, and the best place to enjoy the buzzing café, bar and restaurant scene. Behind the port lies a labyrinth of cobbled Ottoman streets lined with craft shops and galleries. You can get a good understanding of the ancient history of the local area at the Chania Archaeological Museum. At sundown the harbour really kicks into life, as tourists and locals come out to enjoy the warm evening air. Some of the most impressive upmarket restaurants have a waterfront position, but there are plenty of reasonably priced places in the area serving all kinds of food. Chania even has some pleasant beaches within walking distance of the town, perfect for a relaxed afternoon for the whole family.
While Chania is a wonderful place to explore, Crete offers so much for the traveller that a hire car is almost essential. Just a short drive along the coast you can find some of Crete's famous golden beaches and enjoy a little sunbathing (don’t forget the cream!). You could visit the ancient sites of Phalassarna with its Cyclopean walls, Aptera with its Roman Theatre, or perhaps take a trip to the Agia Triada Monastery with its impressive gate built in 1632.
