Chania (say “Hanya”) must be the loveliest port town in Greece. Swallows soar in sheer blue skies above the semicircle of tall Venetian houses around its picture-perfect Old Harbour. The tables of scores of bars and restaurants line the quayside. Behind the harbour front, narrow, traffic-free shopping lanes thread through the atmospheric Old Town. On either side of the town, sandy beaches stretch along the coast.

Right now we have no departures. That may be because we do not have any direct flight to your destination right now. Continue to the timetable to find suggestions for the best travel route.

Venetian Harbor

The harbour is hard to miss, being one of the attractions essential to Chania vacationers. Here, historic buildings are occupied by buzzing seafood restaurants and cafes, and a waterside promenade takes you on a journey through time - some parts of the fortifications date back to the 16th century.

Firkas Fortress

The calm ruins of Venetian defence structures remain standing all around the Chania harbour, with the best-conserved bit being the Western part of the wall. Its fascinating Naval Museum (next door) recalls Chania’s maritime tradition. The fortress is also where the Greek flag first was raised.

Chania Airport

Chania Airport, western Crete’s main gateway, is located 14 kilometres from the city. Most travellers arrive on tour operator packages including bus transfer or car hire. Independent travellers can catch a taxi into town.

Public Transport

From 6 am to 6 pm, public buses serve the coast road to and from Chania, stopping at the resorts. In Chania, town buses serve the modern districts, but the Old Town is small enough to walk around, and its lanes are too narrow for buses.
