On the way to Chania, by the Souda Bay, in a very peaceful place lies the last residence of thousands of soldiers who came to Crete from places as far as Australia to fight against Hitler during the 2nd world war during the Battle of Crete. A short time visit to pay our respect. After a short ride on the hills by the sea, hidden inside the vineyards and the olive groves in the Akrotiri area, appears in front of us, one of the most beautiful monasteries of Crete, with its imposing architecture and its world known products. Founded at the dawn of the 17th century, it was always a great theological, economical and agricultural center of the region, helping the most the nearby society of Chania. Let our official tourist guide explain to you everything about the history of this magnificent structure and then treat yourself in the cellar with some of the best products on the island – excellent wines, rewarded olive oil – balsamic orange sauce and natural thymian honey just some of them…Right after that we head to Chania..
Wander around the most beautiful settlement of Crete, Chania, where Minoan, Venetian, Byzantine, Ottoman and Jewish buildings stand side by side, giving us the feeling that we are travelling back in time. Get lost in the narrow paved little streets with the numerous venetian palaces, hidden one next to the other, with the minarets straightening up to the sky, with the 15th century Synagogue being a martyr of the once thriving jewish society – and let your imagination bring to life images of a past era, with the descriptions of our official tourist guide. Get inside the unlimited little shops and restaurants just to admire their amazing architecture and their cozy designs and colors. Take a selfie in the most photographed harbor of Greece, the venetian port of Chania with the symbol of the city in the background, the hundreds years old lighthouse. After the city tour we ‘ll head to a gem-restaurant where you ‘ll have lunch like the locals do, a selection of different mouthwatering tastes, a variety of mezes and very good local wine.
