    Walk around this charming and historical harbour!

    Chania Chania Old Venetian Harbour

    The old Venetian harbour of Chania is considered one of the most significant historical landmarks in Crete. It was originally built by the Venetians between 1320 – 1356 AD during their occupation in Crete and it was considered among the most important trade centers in Mediterranean.

    Nowadays most of the parts of harbour have been restored, such as the Lighthouse, the Firka Fortesss and the fortifications, and it is one of the most popular spots on the island. There are many cafes, bars, eateries and shops around.

    Tip: Make sure you walk to the lighthouse just before the sun sets for one of the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see!
