Chania lies on the north coast of west Crete; it is a unique city bearing a rich and long history and culture. Its name is often glorified in historical documents as the city which raised brave soldiers, groundbreaking politicians, intellectuals and artists. Also considered as the city of Justice and Freedom, Chania’s rare beauty justifies its characterization as the "Venice of the East".

The city of Chania was a crossroad between the East and the West for many centuries, and for this reason it was claimed by its enemies and suffered the presence of many conquerors. The old city of Chania has managed to preserve its cultural heritage and traditional architecture and to successfully combine it with a modern lifestyle. A walk in the narrow streets of the old city offers nostalgic images from the past.

This lovely city invites visitors to discover unique monuments, such as, the Grand Arsenal, the Egyptian Lighthouse, the Venetian dockyard ("Neoria")and many others. Walk through the streets and discover the numerous churches and the majestic neoclassic buildings. Enjoy the sea breeze at the portside, the colors of the old city and taste the local cuisine in picturesque restaurants and taverns.
