City Guide: Chania

CHANIA is a gateway destination to the so-called "inner Crete".

But Chania is not afraid of its historic face and itself began in the Neolithic period. It was chosen by settlers due to its strategic location in a hilly area.

This height protected the city from early attacks and it evolved into bustling destination through various hands. First, the Romans conquered Chania in 67 BC. then the city joined the Byzantine Empire that reshaped gray city walls to being unparallelled in terms of design, while the Venetians fortified Chania with a fortress on Kastelli Hill.
