Chania The Essential

Chania has managed to preserve its old town and Venetian port, a hotspot of local tourism. A seaside town and commercial centre, it is the island's second largest town after Heraklion and has undeniable charm: narrow streets reminiscent of Eastern souks, sumptuous façades, Venetian houses with ornate balconies giving onto the sea, quayside covered with café terraces. It is a modern town with always lively tree-lined squares, the traditional kafeneion (cafés) and places to eat.
