Chania City is a unique city bearing a rich and long history and culture. Its name is often glorified in historical documents as the city raised brave soldiers, groundbreaking politicians, intellectuals and artists. It is considered the city of Justice and Freedom and its rare beauty justifies its characterization as the “Venice of the East”. Labyrinth like and evocative, colorful and crumbling, it is a city for adventurers and romantics. The old city has managed to preserve its cultural heritage and traditional architecture and to successfully combine it with its modern lifestyle. Divided into a number of areas, the old part of town is a mix of colourful old Venetian mansions and winding laneways. A walk in the narrow streets of the old city offers nostalgic images from the past. We invite you to explore with us our lovely city and its unique monuments the Grand Arsenal, the Egyptian Lighthouse, the Venetian dockyard (“Neoria”), the Turkish quarters, the Synagogue, the fortress and the covered food market in the center of the town with an amazing array of delicacies for sale.
