When people talk of Greece, Chania is hardly ever mentioned. People talk about Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini, but never this small town with a beautiful harbor.
We wouldn’t have known about Chania, if it were’t for our original travel plans that included a short trip in Rome for some tennis. I don’t want to backtrack as much as possible, and I found a flight that goes from Rome to Hania (as it’s sometimes spelled), which can be our gateway to Heraklio, the main reason why we’re going to Crete.
It was a good decision to stay here for a couple of days, even if Rome is now out of the picture. The Old Town of Chania is very picturesque, with its small alleys, crawling vines, and colorful Venetian Harbor. There’s not a lot to do in the city, but that suits me just fine. I’m happy with Chania just the way it is.
