Crete Airport Chania Car Hire

Airport Car Hire

The second-largest city in Crete, Chania is a beloved destination of British travellers. As characterized by its beautiful beaches and fun nightlife as it is by its historical heritage and surrounding nature, it has something for every taste. Here’s our pick of the best attractions in Chania and Western Crete:

  • Jewish Quarter and Etz Hayyim Synagogue. Although Crete is famous for its Minoan, Byzantine, and Venetian heritage, the island’s Jewish community was just as important to its life for more than 2,000 years. Although most of it sadly perished during the Second World War, the renovated Etz Hayyim synagogue in the historic Jewish quarter of Hania remains an important reminder of that heritage. Located in the northern part of Chania’s old town, itself a place worthy of attention, the Jewish quarter can be easily reached from anywhere in the city.
  • Samaria. An impressive gorge and national park near Crete’s southern coast, Samaria is one of the most impressive natural attractions in all of Greece. Whether you walk all the way from the Iron Gates in the north to the gorge’s end in the south or just take in the view from above, visiting Samaria is likely to be a memorable experience. Xyloskalo, the northern entrance of the gorge, is located 42 km (26 mi) from Chania and can be reached in about one hour by car.
  • Paleochora. A village of just 2,000 people near the island’s southwestern tip, Paleochora punches way above its size when it comes to things to see and do. Home to some of the island’s nicest beaches and offering views of the nearby White Mountains, it also boasts an impressive fortress and a collection of Byzantine and Venetian frescoes. Located 72 km (45 miles) from Chania, Paleochora takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach.
