Region: Crete Area: Chania, Old Town of Chania
 
Crete, is in area approximately the same size as Corsica, and is the largest of the Greek islands. Because of its geographical position, it is the border that separates the Aegean for the Libyan Sea, in essence Europe from Africa. The climate of the island is considered one of the best in Europe. On the island the mountains dominate. Deep gorges cut across literally the high mountains (as the Lefka Ori, Psiloritis, Dikti) before they reach the fertile valleys. This way there is constantly a variation in the landscape, woody, green and quiet.
Enter the rhythms of Crete and start discovering this island which is considered the cradle of the western world.

Źnossos: the most important of the Minoan palaces and the oldest city of Greece.
The Gorge of Samaria: a unique trekking experience in the deepest gorge in Europe.
The Venetian castle of Fragokastelo
The Elafonisi: a small heavenly islet on the southwest side of Crete.

ACTIVITIES 
The old town of Hania, with the magnificent harbor, radiates a unique Venetian aura while at the same time it offers mild Oriental elements. A walk in the small streets of the town will make your heart "travel" through the history of Crete.
The closed market, in the shape of a cross, is always clean, full of people and smells. The archaeological museum is located in the basilica of St Frantsesko, one of the most beautiful Venetian buildings which dates back to the 14th century.
About 20 kms south east of Rethymnon you will find the Convent of Arkadi which is among the highest points of Crete. A little further you will find the deep and huge cave of Melidoni. The view of the Idi mountain is superb. At this point you will have reached the highest point of Crete.
Behind the town of Hania the famous White Mountains are located with the highest peak Pahnes Mount at 2456 meters.
