  • Over 5 centuries stands the lighthouse of the old harbour of Chania. The lighthouse that has become the city's recognition throughout the world.

  • This is a nice walk to do during sunset or sunrise but in the middle of the day it is way too hot for it. The views are beautiful though. You must be careful as the walk is very rocky and has many sta...  more »
  • We made several visits to the Centre of Chania, one day decided to take a walk to the lighthouse. With us was a child 3 years old and buggy. Walk very much, but surely it is better to make a visit to the lighthouse during daylight hours. The road is flat in places, sometimes cobblestone. There are many outlets for beautiful photography, especially at sunset. In water you can see a lot of fish and small crabs. As a result, the child ran himself, carrying the stroller folded. Round-trip walk itself takes minutes 30-40 minimum.

Where to stay in Chania Town

Many package tourists on Crete stay in comfortable hotels outside Chania Town, though this lively seaport offers accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels to five-star resorts. If you too prefer to stay out of town, consider one of the surrounding area's well-appointed villas and apartments, which provide secure parking and access to private outdoor spaces. Stick to the city's harbor area for fine shopping and dining, or check out the old town's boutique hotels for good atmosphere, friendly service, and proximity to sandy beaches.
