Excursion Itinerary: Chania Street Stories

Exploring the streets and alleys of Chania

At the agreed meeting point, at approximately 09:00 hrs, your tour guide will begin the exploration of the colorful alleys and streets of Chania town.

You will start at Dimotiki Agora (Municipal Market), built between 1908 and 1913 (the year that Crete was united with Greece).  The Agora marks the border between the old and new town and hosts more than 70 shops selling mostly regional products. You will explore the market and sample local delicacies, while learning about the delicious and healthy Cretan diet.

With your taste buds satisfied, you will walk in the old town district. Wander through narrow lanes, hidden backstreets, peer through open doors to secret gardens, and Venetian and Ottoman monuments. Listen to stories of empires, sailors, traders, lovers, heroes, and artists. Learn about how this city has served as a crossroads between the East and the West for centuries.

Next, you will have the unique opportunity to see local artisans crafting their products. Listen to their stories — and maybe even try your own skills!

From here, this Chania tour will take you on a stroll through the Jewish and Ottoman neighborhoods, where you will discover how life has changed over the years in this city of multicultural residents.

Finally, you will walk along the waterfront of one of Chania’s historic areas and take your seat at a Cretan table filled with mezedes (local dishes).

Your Crete tour will end either here or we could take you back to the starting point. With so many suggestions and tips from your local guide, you will definitely have a myriad of things you will want to do next!

Greca Tip: As this is a walking tour, it is advisable that you wear comfortable walking shoes. During summer do not forget your sunglasses, sun lotion and of course a photo camera as Chania will simply astonish you!
