Must see places in Crete
Chania Port: Surrounded by busy tavernas, cafés and gift shops, this romantic harbour is brightened at night by a Venetian-era lighthouse.
Wine Country: South of Knossos, the peza region is prime wine country. Visit Boutari’s stunning showroom for a tour and taste.
Chania is home to a wide range of natural beauties which include the famous gorge of Samaria, which is 18km long and contains running waters and ponds. There are also numerous picturesque villages to discover, such as Elos, surrounded by forests and famed for its Chestnut Festivals.
Furthermore, Crete is bursting with churches and monasteries waiting to be marveled. These include monasteries such as Agia Triada Zangarolon and the Chrissoskalitissa Monastery which is placed on an enormous black rock overlooking the serene bay.
Additionally, just off the coast of Chania is an uninhabited, small islet called Elafonissi, where one can spend the day relaxing on the deserted beaches or exploring the islands flora and fauna.
