Old Venetian Harbour

The Heart and soul of Chania is the Old Venetian Harbour. The Venetians ruled Chania from the 1252 – 1645 and used it to export and import products from all around the Middle East. The Harbor itself is simply astonishing and can be seen from almost everywhere. A beautiful walk along Chania Harbor is very romantic and is a must-do when visiting Crete. Sunset colours will make any picture outstanding.
