Chania - the beautiful
Habited by the Minoans (500 BC), the Venetians reigned and fortified the city from 1250-1600. Chania (or Hania) is located on the Western region of Crete and has over 60,000 residents. A wide seafront promenade starts at the sandy beach of Nea Chora and runs through the fishing harbor all the way to the Old Port. Arches, wooden bay windows, marble stone and columns adorn the old town, while the walls of the Fort surround it. Walking through the narrow streets, you will find gems of small shops, local cafes and tavernas. Your eyes will wander at the beauty of Chania.
