Chania, Crete

The second-largest city in Crete and capital of the Homonym Prefecture, Chania is located in Minoan Kidonia at the end of the Homonym Gulf between the Akrotiri and Onicha peninsulas. Chania City is divided into two parts; the Old Town, which is comprised of several connected districts built around the old Venetian Harbour, and New Town, a larger, more modern city whose centre is situated next to, and south of, the Old Town.

The Old Town is home to Venetian buildings and Turkish elements that combine to create a unique architectural style, and is considered to be the most beautiful urban district on Crete. It was once surrounded by old Venetian fortifications that separated it from the New Town; however, only the eastern and western parts remain today. Due to its compact size, Skiathos can be easily explored in just a single day.

Excursiones en Chania, Crete

Akrotiri & Chania Town

Discover the antiquities and treasures of Crete during this half-day outing.


Tomb of Eleftherios Venizelos

Departing from the port in your air-conditioned coach, a short drive will bring you to Akrotiri peninsula, which lies between Chania and Rethymnon. At its base, on top of Profitis Ilias hill, is a shrine to Crete's national hero, Eleftherios Venizelos. Visit his tomb which is considered a place of pilgrimage, for it was here that Cretan rebels raised the Greek flag in 1897 in defiance of the Great Powers. He is the famous politician who introduced Crete as part of Greece in 1913. There is lovely view over Chania that is second to none.


Chania Archaeological Museum

From here a short drive will take you to Chania. Your first visit is the small, but charming Archaeological museum of Chania, housed in the Venetian church of San Francesco. It displays artifacts from western Crete including pottery, sculpture, mosaics and coins that date from Neolithic times to the Roman era.


Old Town & Market Visit

Then, enjoy a walking tour through the old town and the Market of Chania. The Municipal Market was opened by Eleftherios Venizelos in 1913. It is in the shape of a cross and has four doors, one to each arm, which are shut to secure the shops housed here. The market has 76 shops, including butchers' shops, fishmongers', general stores, a chemist's, etc. It is an architectural jewel of Chania and one of the most impressive covered markets in the Balkans. You have the opportunity to enjoy some free time before returning to the ship in time for lunch on board.


Please note: Tour involves moderate walking and is not wheelchair accessible. We suggest guests dress in seasonal attire, wear flat, walking shoes and sun protection. A minimum number of guests per guide is required to operate this programme.

Rethymnon Highlights

Discover why it is said,"Rethymnon is not a place where you go, but a place where you return." during this half-day tour.


Rethymnon is the homeland of Zeus, the god of Hospitality. Departing the pier in your air-conditioned coach, enjoy your scenic drive from Souda bay to the Fortezza in Rethymnon.


Fortezza

It was built by the Venetians for the protection of the inhabitants by the enemy threat. It is star shaped with three gates and six bastions. In the middle, the church of St Nicolo was turned into the Mosque of the Sultan Ibrahim Han.


Old Town and Free Time

After the visit of the Fortezza enjoy your walking tour of old town of Rethymnon. At the end of the walking tour you will have the opportunity to enjoy some free time to explore further on your own or simply enjoy refreshments at seaside café before returning to the ship.
