Chania was a surprisingly lovely place to visit. Took a tour “Taste of Crete” where we visited some historical churches, typical villages, olive plantation and winery followed by a couple of hours browsing the port town of Chania, I would go back as this was my first taste of Greece.

We only had 4 hours in port, which was a complete shame as the island is so big and there are so many things to see. But, I'd rather have seen just a bit of it, than nothing at all! Instead of just going to the old town, we did a tour Agia Triada monastery and some viewpoints over the city, along with the old town. It was great!

We had a very short visit of only a couple hours. From the port you can take a public bus for 3.60 euro round trip. You pick the bus up where it drops you off by the old market. We enjoyed eating and walking around. There were banks and shipping. I would love to go back.
Beautiful port. We were advised to skip tours which worked out, but a lot to see so go early!

The Island of Crete was one of our favorites. We docked at Chania Souda. It was like old world with technology. Felt safe here. We hired a driver to take us out for the day about 5 hours. Lefteris Nikiforakis is the owner and was our Taxi driver and he was amazing. We went to see many things and experience things on this beautiful island. There were mountains here in which there was still snow visable on the top. Many flowers blooming here. Just beautiful. The things we went to see include Market Building at the Venetian Port, Lighthouse & Turkish Mask, Apera which is a 3500 Yr old Minoan town euro 2.5 to get in, drove through the Country side: Stilos, Neo, Choria Armeni, Kalives, Vamos. We tasted the local foods and drink like yogurt, honey olive oils and more. Crete was my favorite island.
