Welcome to
Chania


A city of many tales, ancient, old and contemporary, Greek and yet not only. Chania is one of the most appealing and worldwide popular tourist destinations of Greece, attracting every year, all year round, thousands of visitors and faithful lovers who repeatedly return to this mistress/city that has been so generously blessed by nature and densely woven by history.

Chania city expanded its reach, outside the Venetian fortress during the last three centuries. The architectural styles in different zones of modern Chania showcase a timeline of how different socio-economic groups settled in the city. The iconic Venetian Harbor is the picture-perfect, social media ‘must-share’, part of Chania city, where architecture travels you to its historical past. The exquisite monuments, along with the restored centuries-old buildings, create a one-of-a-kind setting that clearly belongs on everyone’s bucket list
