The second largest city in Crete, Chania is considered one of the most stunningly picturesque cities in Greece. Lying along the north coast of the island, there is simply no better way to see Chania than with your own set of wheels.
By securing a car rental, Chania is yours to explore at a pace that suits you. No bus timetables to adhere to or costly taxi fares to pay for, just the open road and an endless list of landmarks to see, beaches to visit and delicious cuisine to try – and all from the comfort of your hire car.
Rental Center Crete can help you discover the very best of Chania and surrounds. And with additional services and amenities including child seats, roof racks and a comprehensive map of the island offered absolutely free of charge, we’re simply the best choice for Chania car hire.
A city so steeped in history and natural beauty means that there is never a bad time to visit Chania. But locals know that mid-May is a particularly beautiful time to visit. After April’s heavy rainfall, May sees the area come alive with lush greenery and wildflowers which makes travelling by car a wonderful scenic experience. With average temperatures ranging from 17 -27 degrees Celsius, this time of year offers ideal sightseeing weather.
Visiting Chania in May and early June also means you avoid the peak tourist season which can make for a more relaxing holiday experience. And with the convenience of a hire car, Chania’s hidden gems are easily accessible. Create an itinerary that takes in popular tourist attractions along with day trips to undiscovered places that are only ever found when you’re free to explore.
There really is nothing like the freedom of having your own transport when you travel. It’s the best way to set your own itinerary and explore places off the beaten path where public transport simply does not go. Immerse yourself in the unique local culture with a hire car. Chania boasts many scenic routes for you to enjoy. The city hugs the north coast of Crete so travelling the winding mountain roads offers breathtaking views of the coastline.
