The place where Cretan and Venetian cultures merged in the 13th century, Chania Town attracts throngs of tourists with its well-preserved medieval harbor.
Visiting Scuba & Snorkeling and Samaria Gorge National Park will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at St. Nicholas Church and Archaeological Site of Ancient Aptera. Get out of town with these interesting Chania Town side-trips: Monastery of Arkadi (in Rethymnon), Lake Kournas (in Kournas) and Falassarna Beach (in Falassarna). The adventure continues: explore the different monuments and memorials at German War Cemetery.

Plan my Chania Town trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Perth, Australia to Chania Town is an approximately 24-hour flight. Traveling from Perth to Chania Town, you'll gain 6 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Perth in September, you will find days in Chania Town are a bit warmer (34°C), and nights are much hotter (23°C).
