Chania Town

4.2
The place where Cretan and Venetian cultures merged in the 13th century, Chania Town attracts throngs of tourists with its well-preserved medieval harbor. Architectural reminders of both Venetian and Ottoman conquerors line the port town's narrow lanes, painstakingly restored to accommodate upscale restaurants, boutique hotels, galleries, and museums. Despite a deluge of foreign visitors arriving at the height of the season, Chania offers plenty of spots where you can unwind and meet the locals. Stick to the harbor area for fine shopping and dining, but if you wish to discover the "real Crete," take a short drive out of town and explore the small communities along the island's northwestern coastline. Chania Town is in Chania Prefecture. Whether you only want to go to Chania Town, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Greece driving holiday planning app .
