    Agia Triada Monastery, Akrotiri & Chania

    La Canea, Creta, Grecia

    Duración 4 horas

    Delve into the history of Crete by visiting a military cemetery, a magnificent monastery known for its olive oil and wine, and Chania’s spectacular Old Town.


    Depart from the pier and drive east to a small plateau that holds a cemetery where more than 1,500 British soldiers were buried after the Battle of Crete in 1941. The cemetery overlooks Souda Bay and is a somber reminder of Crete’s strategic role in World War II.


    Afterwards, you will drive to the Agia Triada Monastery on the Akrotiri peninsula, whose construction began in 1634. Over the centuries, the complex has been expanded and now contains a large church, seminary and vaulted storerooms, all meticulously maintained. The monastery also produces a revered olive oil and several varieties of wine.


    Driving on, you will then visit the tomb of Eleftherios Venizelos, a charismatic political figure who fought for Cretan independence. As Prime Minister, he was profoundly influential in the founding of modern Greece, until his death in 1936. From his modest, unadorned tomb, you will have a magnificent view back to Chania, your next stop.


    On a walking tour of the most historical sections of Old Town, you will gain great insight into Chania’s founding. Many of the Venetian villas and palazzos have been restored, and there is a cathedral dedicated to the Virgin of the Three Martyrs, the patron saint of Chania. You will also browse the bustling agora, where exotic herbs seductively scent the air. Later, you will return to the pier.

    Chania Walking Tour

    La Canea, Creta, Grecia

    Duración 3.5 horas

    Walk through Chania’s irresistible Old Town admiring the architecture, becoming immersed in Crete’s history, and later, enjoying the bounty of shops around the harbor.


    Depart from the pier and make the brief drive into the heart of Chania, where you will begin your walking tour. Along the way, the guide will point out the most notable attractions and elaborate on the city’s founding, often through anecdotes. Once the capital of Crete, Chania was originally constructed around a Venetian port in what is now the Old Town.


    Over the centuries, various civilizations have conquered and occupied Crete and left their marks architecturally on Chania. While navigating through the charming labyrinth of streets, you will see elegant Venetian buildings, Turkish fountains, Jewish quarters, Christian churches, mosques and synagogues. You will also have the opportunity to browse the Market Hall. Built in the shape of a cross in 1913 to celebrate Crete’s reunification with Greece, the shopping venue is filled with elaborate stalls overflowing with merchandise as varied as handbags, herbs and sponges.


    The guided portion of your tour ends around the harbor, a delightfully lively area featuring countless tavernas, galleries and shops where you’re welcome to watch the tradesmen work. Fresh seafood dishes are a specialty in most of the cafés, so you might consider spending your free time doing nothing more ambitious than casually dining and lingering over a glass of Cretan wine. You might even catch sight of the Arabian lighthouse at the harbor’s entrance. Afterwards, you will rejoin your coach drive back to the pier.
