This is CHANIA, CRETE. 🇬🇷 Is it the Best city in Greece? What to do in Crete.
Chania (also spelled: Haniá)is the capital city, a place where different civilizations have flourished throughout the centuries. Wandering around the Old Town’s maze-like alleys with the beautiful Venetian mansions, the fountains and the elaborate churches will help you discover well-preserved historical monuments.
We spent a day exploring the beautiful Cretan city of Chania! It can be found on the north west side of the island of Crete (the largest Greek island).
We begin the day at Nea Chora beach, which is right in town. Here you’ll find lots of restaurants and bars along with beach chairs and umbrellas that you can rent for about 5 Euros.
Next we explore the old Venetian city walls which surround the old city. After walk up on the walls we come down to check out the Old Venetian port as well as the lighthouse, which happens to be one of the oldest in the world.
Lastly we explore the cute streets of the old city and stop to try to Cretan pies filled with spinach and mizithra cheese as well as some Greek coffee.
