    Attios Travel Agency for Your Trips

    by Updated Jun 5, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I can sincerely recomend Attios Travel Agency for your trips around Chania. They offer professional customer care, good services and accept credit cards.

    As far as I know Attios offers decent (comparatively low) prices but you should better check before you make any decision.

    A Country and City of War

    by Jmill42 Written Mar 7, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: st cities of Crete, Hania was conquered in 69 BC by the Romans. It was under the control of the Byzantines in 961 AD, and it became a Venetian colony in 1252. Venice's influence can still been seen today, seen in the great wall surrounding the city. In 1646, the city fell to the Ottoman Empire. And in 1913, at the end of the Ottoman rule, Crete was ceded to Greece, with Hania being made the capital. During the second World War in 1941, Cretans put up a great resistance to the airborne-invading Nazis.

    The reason for the long history of war to control the city, lies in its strategic position in the Mediterranean. At the west end of Crete is in a great position for the trading industry.

    Koum Kapi Bay

    by etfromnc Updated Feb 22, 2009

    Favorite thing: Beautiful, deep blue water. This is where you will find the "cool" people, both tourists and locals. The "really cool" people will tend to be sipping iced coffee, playing backgammon, and surreptitiously watching the common people. We common folk may play backgammon, although I cannot abide iced coffee in Chania nor elsewhere, or we may shop, eat at any of several restaurants or tavernas, or just walk along the edge of the usually very blue and even more beautiful rock promenade at the water's edge.

    Fondest memory: The visual depth of the blue water

    View from my pension

    Fondest memory: I remember arriving into town before sunrise. The town was still asleep and I felt as though I had the entire island to myself. After I found my pension I sat in the window overlooking the harbor and watched the sun come up and the daily ebb and flow of life begin.

    Old Town

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Having walks and a coffee at the Old Town

    Fondest memory: The Old Town of Chania doesn't cover a large area but is very beautiful. It is full of small alleys like the one in the photo. This is the street where I was staying.
