A walk through the colourful neighbourhoods of Rethymno and Chania, while exploring their historical background.
Heading towards the west, our first stop will be at Rethymnon for a fascinating walking tour through its narrow winding streets, the old houses with their wooden covered balconies, the Venetian and the Turkish monuments. A walk through time, this stroll will help you gain an understanding of how the city's multilayered history has unfolded, with visits to the Loggia, the Fortezza and the Rimondi fountain.
We will then drive to the charming town of Chania. It used to be surrounded by the old Venetian fortifications, of which only the eastern and western parts have survived.
Despite being heavily bombed in World War II, Chania's old quarters is Crete's most beautiful urban district, especially the crumbling Venetian harbour with its 15th century lighthouse. We will make our way through its colourful neighbourhoods, learning about the traditional lifestyle in this town. Our tour will allow you to visit the most important sites as the Archaeological Museum, the Cathedral, the leather lane and the Market Hall but also plenty exciting, hidden spots off the beaten track, spots that reflect the eclectic mix of influences that has given Chania its very unique atmosphere. After lunch at a quaint tavern in the alleys, there will be time at leisure for you to stroll around.
