Chania is resort city in the North-West of island of Crete, famous for its winding streets, clean beaches, Venetian port and cozy coastal restaurants with more than affordable prices. Although most of Crete sights are located at a sufficient distance from city, lying on the beach is not the only option for spending time in Chania, whose history extends over a number of millennia.
It is better to start a observation excursion from the old Venetian port – walking area is 1.5 km long and ends with the Egyptian lighthouse. This is not only one of the main sights of the city, but also one of the world's oldest lighthouse was built by the Venetians at the end of the 16th century. Excursion in old part of the city is better to make under the leadership of English-speaking guide, who will tell many interesting things about mosque Kuchuk Hassan and Firkas Fortress, the quarters of Kasteli,Topanas and Splantzia, make up the ideal tour route through the museums of city.
