Crete’s second largest town is the romantic port city of Chania. Home to a beautiful Venetian quarter, a magnificent harbour and a buzzing city centre, it’s an excellent escape for those who love pristine stretches of sand, delicious food and natural beauty. Chania is just a stone’s throw away from Europe’s grandest gorge, Samaria Gorge, too.

 

Fly to Chania with British Airways and explore the Old Town, which is full of ancient architecture, from historical Venetian mansions to Turkish mosques. Then visit the city’s cosmopolitan harbour, which offers a lively atmosphere well into the early hours. For food, head to the covered market, Agora – it’s rumoured to be one of the best places to buy local produce in Greece. You can also venture further afield if you want to take a break from days spent on the Blue Flag beaches, and visit the village of Maleme, where Crete’s most famous World War II battle took place. Book your Crete holiday now.
