Being merry in Chania is easy to achieve! A walk up and down the picturesque Old Venetian Port on a sunny day can make most people I know happy! Below I’ve collected the must-see points of interest in downtown Chania — all the things you really shouldn’t miss, i.e. the Old Town districts (along with their history, current state and tips about cafés & nearby restaurants), the picturesque port of Koum Kapi, the Municipal Market, the Nautical Museum, the open-air music hall of Anatoliki Tafros, open-air movie theaters, the best beach in walking distance and more. If you want to see my selections for the best beaches in the Chania region or my recommended excursions and activities just outside Chania, visit the Be Merry Suburbs tab and the Chania Excursions page.
