travel42 Port Guide: Chania

Chania travel42 Port of Call Guide

Chania (sometimes spelled Khania) is situated in the western part of Crete Island.

It's a good place to stop for lunch or dinner and watch the parade of people strolling along the charming curved Venetian harbor quayside (especially at night).

Most of the city's interesting sites are found in the old Venetian quarter, which is one of the most romantic places in the Mediterranean. Many of the old town's 15th- and 16th-century mansions have been transformed into cozy inns.
