Chania Town is an excellent destination for spending a fun-filled family vacation. The medieval architecture and the exotic mansions and ports impress visitors in the first look. A stroll through the town gives visitors a peek into the lifestyle of the locals. The main squares of the town Splatzia Square and the Dikastiria Square are surrounded by excellent pieces of architecture. The Venetian port is a great place to visit and enjoy a cup of coffee. There are several coffee shops that line the harbor area. Along the port is the Yiali Tzami a 17th century mosque which now serves as an art gallery.
The Minoan Ship is a beautiful replica of the ships that were used by the Minoans during trade. The ship is definitely worth visiting.
