Our next destination will be in Chania, the most ravishing city of Crete the second largest city and the former capital of the island. The city is divided into two parts: the Old town, with the gorgeous harbour and the New town, beyond its Venetian fortifications.
The Old town of Chania is one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean and it is also known as “Venice of Crete”. You will have plenty of time to stroll through its narrow streets, visit the old port and famous Agora market, which houses traditional little shops and taverns. You can also have lunch in one of the restaurants with the view over the harbour.
Leaving Chania we head to the Kournas Lake, the only freshwater lake on the island, located in a picturesque and quiet place surrounded by high green hills. Here you can swim and sunbathe, take a catamaran and explore the lake and its inhabitants, go for a walk or have lunch in one of the local taverns famous for its delicious Cretan cuisine.
On a way back, our final destination we will also visit Rethymnon, the third biggest town in Crete, where monuments of the archaeological, Ottoman and Venetian eras coexist, in an extremely interesting way. Have a stroll in the alleys of the old town, visit the Turkish minarets and the Venetian fortress Fortezza or just enjoy your coffee in the magnificent harbour.
