Destination La Canée En tete bannière

Second largest city in Crete after Heraklion!

Chania is also a must-see destination for tourists wishing to explore western Crete.

Strongly imbued with Cretan culture and traditions, the city also has an Italian atmosphere, a historical vestige of the Venetian occupation. Let yourself be seduced by this picturesque town built on the former Minoan site of Kydonia.

Visiting the old town

Chania is a cosmopolitan city and is influenced by many cultures. With the varied inspiration behind its buildings, the old town bears witness to that fact most breathtakingly. Quietly wander through the cobblestone streets and stop by the old Venetian port. You can also visit its old lighthouse, which dates back to the 15th century. Chania's covered market is also very popular.
Destination La Canée Koukouvayia

Taste local cuisine

There's nothing like a trip to Chania to discover the inimitable flavors of Mediterranean cooking. The region relies a lot on olive, citrus, avocado, and even wine production. Some Cretan specialty items that are well worth the detour include: kalitsounia (a sugar and cinnamon-based dessert), koukouvayia (bread covered in crushed tomatoes, olives, and feta), and also Cretan salad, which is a must-try.
