Itinerary

​Meet and greet at port Visit Chrysopigi Chrysopigi Chania town walking tour Free time to explore Return to port

Your tour will begin with a drive to the port of Souda, followed by a visit to the 16th-Century monastery of Chrysopigi, approximately 3km south of Chania. The monastery has a long and fascinating history and is dedicated to our Lady of the Life-Giving Spring, who is known popularly as ‘Chrysopigi’, the Golden Fountain. Since 1976 it has operated as a nunnery and its inhabitants organically cultivate around 130 acres of land with olive, tangerine, orange, avocado, fig, apricot trees and vegetable gardens.

The tour will then take a short break for photos at the Chrysopigi, where you can enjoy the panoramic view over Chania Bay, before we reach the old quarters, crumbling harbour and 15th-Century lighthouse of Chania Town. Crete's most beautiful urban district, Chania was once surrounded by Venetian fortifications, the western and eastern sections of which survive to this day.

Your walking tour will take you through colourful neighbourhoods and allow you to visit the most important sites - including the Archaeological Museum, the Cathedral, the Leather Lane and the Market Hall - as well as plenty of areas off the beaten track, which will give you a chance to experience the unique atmosphere and eclectic influences of Chania.
