Chania Stavros-beach Rethymno

West Crete

We will start our trip driving to the west of Crete and make our first stop at the town of Scaletta. Here you will have time do drink a cup of coffee before we continue our trip.

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. 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 a lunch in one of the restaurants with a view over the harbour.

Leaving Chania we head to the Stavros beach, In the area there is a big steep mountain in the shape of a camel, standing opposite the port of the village. The mountain has become popular from the scenes of the 1964 film “Zorba the Greek“, where Anthony Quinn danced the famous sirtaki!. Here you can swim and sunbathe, take a catamaran and explore the lake and its inhabitants, go for a walk or have a lunch in one of the local taverns famous for their 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.

Your travel guide will tell you everything about Chania, Rethymno and Stavros beach.

We promise you that this day will be one of the best days of your vacation in Crete!
