    The bottom of the briney sea!

    Make sure that you take a trip on the glass bottom boat. There are several of these in the small harbour and cost from £5-£10 per person. They are great fun and you get to sea plenty of swimming turtles, fish and they even take you to sea a downed Nazi plane that crashed down in the sea during WW2. ANd after that, the boat normally stops for 15 - 30 minutes letting people just to relax, or go for a dive in the crystal clear water.

    The little train leaves from just round the corner from naval museum. In May 2007 the trees and shrubs were in full bloom.

    Chania port

    Crete's second biggest city is a beautiful mixture of Venetian and Turkish houses. Spend some time and wander through the small streets!

    I climbed to the top of a construction site which seems to be the highest point around the area. It's surprised to find that you can have a great view of the harbour and the quarter behind it.

    The narrow and winding streets inside the Venetian quarter is lined with craft shops, hotels, restaurants and bars. All are lively and interesting, especially during nightime.

    A very nice city with some historical venetian buildings and a nice seaport, It's maybe the nicest city in Crete. Take time to walk through the streets. It have small streets and curious places.
