Description

Discover what makes Crete's cultural capital so magical on this relaxed full-day walking tour of Chania. You can take in the sights from the old town to the lesser-known Ottoman and Jewish quarters, plus the chic historic neighborhood of Halepa.

Your tour starts at the municipal market, or Dimotiki Agora, which marks the border between the old and new town. Built between 1908 and 1913, the Agora hosts more than 70 shops selling mostly regional products. You can explore the market and sample local delicacies while learning about the deliciously healthy Cretan diet ahead of a walk into the old town.

Wander through narrow laneways, hidden backstreets, and open doors to secret gardens for a look at Venetian and Ottoman monuments. Your guide shares stories of empires, sailors, traders, lovers, heroes, and artists, and explains how this city has been a crossroads between East and West for centuries.

Next, you have the unique opportunity to see local artisans crafting their products. Listen to their stories, and get a chance to try your own skills, before you take a stroll through the Jewish and Ottoman neighborhoods, as your guide explains how life has changed over the years in this multicultural city.

For the last leg of your tour, take a walk along the waterfront and sit down to an inviting table with a dish of Cretan meze. Get a few suggestions and tips from your guide, so you can leave with a myriad of things to do next.

Really enjoyed my tour of the old city of Chania. Guide was knowledgeable about the history of the city, passed on some great tips about places to visit and eat, as well making two stops at cafes for us to stop and sample local food.
