Chania Old Town
Chania Old Town extends along the harbor area, the most distinguished district of the city, always busy, day and night, by a large number of tourists. It can be reached by taking the road more touristy, the Halidhon , where there are plenty of shops. The road ends in a characteristic square, called the Piazza del Port: There is a fountain surrounded by tables of the many cafes and restaurants.
Opposite is the inner harbor, with its long promenade and the Mosque of the Janissaries, the oldest Ottoman building of Crete, strange looking mosque that dominates the landscape with its large dome. Along the waterfront with sweeping views over the wonderful buildings that overlook the sea, colorful houses that seem to lean to one another. Some boats offer excursions in the harbor and along the coast, especially at sunset.
