Renting a car is one of the most ideal ways to go about exploring the gorgeous island of Crete. It is so vast and so diverse that conventional ways of touring will simply not convey how it is to see the Crete through the eyes of a local. So many destinations, so many hidden spots, so many routes to take; the possibilities are absolutely endless. Cosmopolitan cities, traditional towns, spectacular beaches, iconic landmarks, picturesque villages, quaint harbours, riveting ravines and pristine mountains: Crete does in fact have it all.

Chania

Chania, one of Crete’s most fascinating prefectures, the centre of which is found at one of the most magnificent harbours the island can boast about. The seafront promenade that takes you all around the harbour and all the way up to the impressive Venetian lighthouse is one of the most relaxing strolls you can take.
