Either by car, bus or bicycle, don’t forget to visit the world famous city and old town of Chania, Crete which is a mere 9km distance away from our location. It is a fascinating city with historic landmarks found everywhere within a maze of picturesque alleys.
The city dates back in ancient times with the name Kydonia. In the Byzantine era, the first walls were built in order to protect the city from Arab conquerors. During the Venetian period, 1204-1645A.C., the walls were reinforced and the old town retained its development as we know it today. The city was renamed La Canea, and it was a period during which the city flourished financially and culturally. Once again in 1645, the ruling of the city changed hands when the ottomans invaded it. The Ottomans’ ruling lasted up until 1898, leaving their mark everywhere around the city.
Today Chania city is a modern city with all of the amenities one may find in larger urban centers. However the old city with the Venetian harbor and its famous lighthouse retain their old charm as a historic and cultural blend of the invaders and conquerors that left their mark. Most evident is the different architectural styles that prevail. The old town of Chania now boasts restaurants for all tastes, coffee shops, bars and commercial shops and it is very lively especially during sunset time. Tip: enjoy a horse carriage ride or a day cruise that sets sail from the old harbor.
