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 Falassarna Beach will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at Winery Dourakis and Holy Trinity Monastery (Agia Triada). Get out of town with these interesting Chania Town side-trips: Ancient Olive Tree (in Vouves), Kastro Gramvoussas (in Gramvousa) and Kissamos (Sklopa & Balos Lagoon). On the 19th (Wed), enjoy a day of scenic exploration at Samaria Gorge National Park. The adventure continues: learn about winemaking at Manousakis Winery, explore the different monuments and memorials at Souda Bay War Cemetery, step into the grandiose world of Firkas Fortress, and identify plant and animal life at Reptisland.
