Crete | Walking In Chania

Discover Chania by strolling in the Old Town and at the waterfront


Hotels & Apartments in Chania Town - Check Prices

The only problem with walking in the attractive city of Chania is that there is too much to see! There are however a few pointers. The heart of Chania is the fascinating Venetian-era waterfront where you could literally spend all day and most of the evening in one of the many cafes and tavernas along the crescent. You also cannot miss a stroll through the winding alleyways of the Old Town, where shops, cafes and tavernas mingle in an intimate medieval tangle. The centre of Chania also features elegant 19th century mansions built in neoclassical style, reminders of when the city was a flourishing trade centre. For the ideal cycling target, go east out of town following the signs for the airport - but after a steep, swerving climb, turn off when you see a sign for the Venizelos Tombs. This leads you to an area of parkland that includes the impressive tomb of Eleftherios Venizelos, one of the most long-standing Greek premiers. There are excellent views back across the bay to Chania. Keep in mind that in Chania town and in the surrounding area, there are splendid villas for rent, catering to the eclectic traveller.
