Chania is a melting pot of influences, ranging from Turkish to Venetian. It’s perhaps the most beautiful city on the island of Crete, with its winding alleys leading out on to a magnificent harbour.
Like most of Greece, summer is the high season and the period when flights and accommodation are usually more expensive. The peak season is July and August, so travelling in late spring or early autumn will give you a better chance of getting cheap flights to Chania. The weather and sea will still be warm enough to enjoy at these times.

If you’re on holiday just to hang out on the beach and explore the city, then taxis and buses are enough to help you get around. But if you really want to explore the ‘real’ Crete then a visit to some of the inland traditional villages are a must. To do this, ideally you will need a rental car, which are available from a choice of agencies at the airport.
Explore the old harbour and waterfront with a walk to the Venetian lighthouse. The nearby Naval Museum provides a fascinating insight into the history of Crete and although the Archaeological Museum is smaller than its sister museum in Heraklion, it still contains plenty of treasures.
Head to the Tabakaria district, with its old leather processing houses nestled amongst the narrow and steep alleyways.
For a slice of real Cretan life, head out of the city to the surrounding villages and hang out at a local tavern.
