We welcome you to the only walking tour of old town Chania conducted by officially licensed Greek tourist guides. This is a fun tour exploring the old town past and present.
Starting at the orthodox cathedral Trimartiri we will walk the maze of back streets through the former Ottoman quarter (Splanzia), recognizable for its domed-shaped Mosque and the spiraling minarets that still adorn Christian churches in the area.
Next in sequence will be the Minoan excavation at Kastelli in the central part of the old town, followed by harbor area (the Akti) with its eye-catching Venetian architecture.
Relaxed and refreshed we will continue to the northwest and the old Jewish quarter (the Ovraiki) that features the only existing synagogue of the entire island. Concluding this program in the western sector of the old town we will be in the midst of a beautiful strand of Venetian palazzi. You will fall in love with and never forget old Chania.
