Overview:
Following the northwest coastline, we arrive in Chania, the former capital of Crete. The town is divided into the old town, within the Venetian city walls, which is an attractive maze of narrow streets, old mansions and arcades, with mosques and minarets bearing witness to the Turkish influence and the carefully laid out new town which is considered to be one of the most beautiful towns of Crete. Lunch can be enjoyed in one of the many waterfront tavernas, which overlook the old Venetian harbor, where the film "Zorba the Greek" was filmed. You will have free time to visit the famous "Agora" (market) with the leather goods.

On the way back we stop at the picturesque Lake of Kournas.

Next stop the town of Rethymnon, a colorful mixture of Venetian and Turkish architecture, the current center of Arts & Letters of Crete. You may visit the Turkish minarets or enjoy a coffee at the attractive harbor which is dominated by the Venetian fortress.
