Harbor / Marina
“Always the first thing you hear about Chania - the Venetian Harbour, the old port, the narrow shopping streets and waterfront restaurants. It is beautiful - that is to say much of the Chania you will want to see is clustered close to the harbour - old buildings, museums, churches and crafts shops (some with genuinely interesting and sometimes local, products on offer).”

“It may now house the Maritime Museum, but Firkas Fortress, on the north side of the Koundouriotou Coast, has been a watchdog since 1645 as a timeless symbol of freedom for Crete. In Turkish it means "barracks", but it was the Venetians who erected the fort as a fortification project to protect the port's entrance from enemy ships. What makes it extremely important, however, is that the Greek flag for the Union of Crete with Greece was officially raised on 1 December 1913 in the corner of its turret, in the presence of King Constantine, Prime Minister Venizelos, Admiral Kountouri and Admiral Kountouri of a world that cheered.”

Museum
“When in Chania not forget to visit the Museum of Ancient and Traditional Shipbuilding at the docks of the Venetian harbor, where you can see the representation of the Minoan ship "Minoa" of 16th-15th century BC,. The ship was launched in December 2003 and in 2004 made its maiden trip from Chania to Piraeus, accompanying the Olympic flame that was moved by the Athenian Trireme in the last part of the route, and boating events and celebrations of Naval Week. The ship belongs to the nearby Naval Museum. ”
