The largest city in
western Crete and, together with Rethymnon the
most attractive, Haniá is a historically
charming labyrinth of jumbled Venetian and Turkish
buildings surrounding a small harbour, with colourful
markets, town squares, craft shops and fine dining
Narrow, winding lanes
are lined with tavernas, cafes and shops, and
ancient alleyways lead to endless photographic
opportunities that encompass overhanging wooden
balconies, delicate stonework and white Orthodox
churches. The port area is the oldest and most
interesting part of town and is busiest at night
with many bars and restaurants.
A promenade curves around
the harbour leading from the main hotel area.
There are a few museums worth visiting, including
the Archaeological and Naval Museums, and the
famed walk through the Samaria Gorge is a worthwhile
excursion from the town.
