In Chania, you’ll want to soak up the sights of the city proper, including the Old Venetian Harbor and Chania Old Town; taste wine and olive oil; and feast on Cretan food. With three days, you’ll also have time to enjoy adventures farther afield, from Samaria Gorge to Elafonisi Beach. Here's how.
Old Venetian Harbor
Eleftherios Venizelos Square, Chania, Crete
Best accessed on foot. Chania can be reached by daily ferry from Piraeus in Athens, and by plane via Chania International Airport, which is 9 miles (14 km) from the town center.
