The place where Cretan and Venetian cultures merged in the 13th century, Chania Town attracts throngs of tourists with its well-preserved medieval harbor.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Chania Town: Holy Trinity Monastery (Agia Triada) (in Akrotiri), Rethymnon (The Holy Monastery of Preveli, Rethymnon Old Town, &more) and Elafonissi Beach (in Elafonissi). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Old Venetian Harbor, enjoy the sea views from Lighthouse, delve into the distant past at Archaeological Site of Ancient Aptera, and experience rural life at Astrikas Estate Biolea.
