Walking around Old Port of Chania
Chania is Crete’s second biggest town after Heraklion and is situated on the west part of the island. While my visit in Chania, I walked around in the old part of town to discover and explore this wonderful and magical part of the island.
Behind the port there are narrow streets perfect for walking and shopping. There you can find a lot of places to taste the traditional Crete cuisine, with all these amazing cretan foods and goodies.
Crete has a long history, so I decided to discover the history of the place by exploring the Maritime Museum of Chania which was near by a few kilometers away of the monastery of Holy Trinity.

Discover and explore Heraklion town
Heraklion, as well as Chania, has a great history and although its physiognomy has changed from past interventions of the past, there are places reminding of something of the beautiful Grand Castle of the Mediterranean.
The town of Heraklion is the main port, and the chief city of Crete, with influences by the venetians. Also, the town of Fodele, the home town of El Greco, is one of the top things you should visit when in Heraklion.
The accommodation here has a lot of choices, from luxury villas and hotels to rooms to let for all badgets.
