Chania Town

Marinas · Scuba & Snorkeling · Beaches
The place where Cretan and Venetian cultures merged in the 13th century, Chania Town attracts throngs of tourists with its well-preserved medieval harbor. Architectural reminders of both Venetian and Ottoman conquerors line the port town's narrow lanes, painstakingly restored to accommodate upscale restaurants, boutique hotels, galleries, and museums. Despite a deluge of foreign visitors arriving at the height of the season, Chania offers plenty of spots where you can unwind and meet the locals. Stick to the harbor area for fine shopping and dining, but if you wish to discover the "real Crete," take a short drive out of town and explore the small communities along the island's northwestern coastline. Use our Greece online visit planner to arrange your visit to Chania Town and any other destinations in Greece that take your fancy.

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.
