Chania Town, Crete

— 3 nights
The place where Cretan and Venetian cultures merged in the 13th century, Chania Town attracts throngs of tourists with its well-preserved medieval harbor.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lighthouse of Chania and Seitan Limania Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Chania Town side-trips: Holy Trinity Monastery (Agia Triada) (in Akrotiri), St. Nicholas Church (in Georgioupolis) and Old Venetian Harbour of Rethymno (in Rethymnon). There's still lots to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Park & Gardens Of Crete, learn about all things military at Maritime Museum of Crete, take an in-depth tour of Archaeological Museum of Chania, and explore the ancient world of Archaeological Site of Ancient Aptera.
