Chania, a town on the crossroads of civilizations


Chania's Old Town is being inhabited since the ancient ages of the Minoan Civilization from 5000BC. Since then it has always been a vivid place of prosperity and growth, influenced through the ages by the various cultures due to its geopolitical place in the Mediterranean Sea and those who invaded it particularly in the late years, such us the Venetians and the Ottoman Turks.
We will stroll through the historic alleys and pinpoint the Byzantine and the Venetian Walls and Fortifications.
Then walk through the main streets and see the emergence of history from the Ancient Ages from the archeological excavations inside the Old Town to the Medieval and Recent Ages through the old buildings, the churches, the synagogues and the mosques. You will discover how people lived together through times with peace or turbulence. There is a 30-minute wine tasting option, for 12 euro per person, please contact me for further details.
