Owner description: Chania Old Town Walks offers an original way to explore this historically fascinating city through a three hour private walking tour accompanied by a resident archaeologist and historian. The city's past from Minoan times to the Ottoman Turkish period comes alive as we see Chania’s Minoan ruins, its elegant Venetian and Turkish townhouses, its beautifully restored synagogue, as well as mosques, churches, narrow, winding alleyways, tree-lined squares and other hidden gems.

“Beautyful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Nice, little streets and many shops. I recommend to walk there early in the morning or late in the evening, because daytime is very hot and it isn't not pleasant to walk there

“Adorable!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

The Old town of Chiania is really worth a long, peaceful walk!
You can find your way among restaurants (run from the touristic ones!) and shops of local crafts. You don't want to miss the huge ceramic factory/store near the Venetian Port, the crafts are awesome and the prices are very low! The narrow alleys are a true joy for the eyes, and they are an excellent alternative to the multi-coloured chaos of the main streets.

“Charming old town.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

We walked around the old town of Chania including the old port, where we had a lovely seaside lunch. The old town offers nice shops of local crafts as well as the usual tourist shopping. Reading about the history as you walk the streets and alleys of old Chania add to the experience.
