The old town is by far the most beautiful part of Chania. Among the dozens of narrow streets, hide aspects and buildings of the city’s Venetian history that have remained unchanged until today. Almost every building has been restored, while maintaining the style of the past. The dozens of colors, in combination with the bougainvilleas and the stores that are full of people, keep it alive through day and night and offer the city the most wonderful tone. In the streets there are dozens of taverns, cafés, bars and hundreds of tourist shops to buy your souvenirs. We advise you to get away from the commercial streets and wander around the more remote, and even the ones that lead to a dead end, because that is where the beauty of the old town lies. You do not need to rush and pressure yourselves, close your eyes and let the narrow pathways lead you to the best places…They know best!
Suggested visit time: 3-4 hours
The know it all says: The Kastelli Hill, which is located in the heart of the city, has been inhabited since 5500 BC!!
