Chania in Crete, the colorful island town that is appealing to visit all year .... 

Although heavily bombed during World War II, Chania's Old Town is considered the most beautiful urban district on Crete, especially the crumbling Venetian harbor.

The borders of the Old Town are the mostly destroyed old Venetian wall and this has been the cradle of all the civilizations developed in the area.

The beautiful city of Chania has preserved its original colors and historical character, throughout time. It is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Greece and the most picturesque city in Crete.

Numerous beautiful beaches with soft sand or colored pebbles are found in the prefecture of Chania in western Crete.

Many Chania beaches are among the best on the island, such as Balos, Falassarna, and Elafonissi.
