Chania, Crete

With Minoan, Venetian, Ottoman and Greek heritage all bound together, Chania make the perfect blend of splendor and small-town charm.

Loose yourself to the ebb and flow of this city, the twisty alleyways, the fountains and gaze over its grandeur from the Venetian Harbor. Come daylight, you active souls head for Samaria gorge. Come nightfall, its time for a tsikoudia-fueled Cretan feast.
