Chania Walking Private Tour In Detail
Your tour starts with a visit to the beautiful city of Chania.
Chania is the most ravishing and quaint city of Crete that ceased to be its capital after 686 years, in 1971. It was an important Minoan city and is considered to have been the “mother of all the other Cretan cities” by the ancient writers.
The city is divided in two sections: the Old City, where the gorgeous harbor is situated and the New City, which is located beyond its Venetian fortifications. The Old City of Chania is considered to be one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean and it is called “Venice of the East”.
Throughout the whole city we can witness samples of all the civilizations that have passed from here: archaeological Minoan sites, Turkish minarets and mosques, Muslim neighborhoods, Venetian fortresses and dockyards, fountains and squares, arches and mansions, the famous Loggia and of course the landmark of the city, the renowned Lighthouse.
You can enjoy our lunch admiring the view of the quaint harbor or we can visit the famous Agora (Market), which was constructed in 1913 according to the standards of the market in Marseille. Since then, it has been housing a variety of traditional little shops and taverns. Here you can shop souvenirs or leather goods in very good prices.
