Chania features many unique buildings that are well worth a visit. Does the harbour remind you of Venice? That's because it was entirely built by Venetians in Italian style. From here, it's a leisurely walk to the Firkas Fort. The ruins of this fort once formed the Venetian line of defence. Here you can also visit the famous lighthouse. Your walk to the lighthouse is rewarded with a spectacular view of the harbour and the sea. Tired from all the sightseeing? End your day in Chania at one of the many restaurants in the harbour and sample authentic Greek cuisine.
Close to the city of Chania lies the magical beach of Elafonisi. Pink and red shells give this beach a gorgeous pink colour. Tip: Elafonisi is a popular destination, so go early to grab a good spot.
Looking for more adventure? Then conquer the smallest gorge in the world. The Samaria gorge lies at an altitude of 1250 metres. Admire beautiful nature and rock formations on your hike. Bring sturdy walking shoes as the trails are mainly formed by rocks and stones. Sometimes a creek runs through the gorge. Tired or sore feet? The local donkeys can carry you to your final destination. Plan and book your entire trip to this city now with Transavia Holidays.
