Chania. The most popular place in the beautiful island of Crete reachable with our private airplanes and helicopters.
When one is talking about Greek islands, Crete is one of the most popular destinations. You can’t go wrong with Crete. It’s a very big island (compared to other Greek islands) and has to offer pretty much everything that a visitor may ask. There is a city in Crete, called Chania, which is the former capital of the Island. This city offers, beautiful beaches, rich artistic heritage, great historical significance and beautiful landscapes. Being a Greek island city, it has picturesque beauty and you most probably have stumbled upon its beauty through social media posts, mainly during summer.
A walk in the Old town of Chania is a good start for the exploration, get introduced to its market and local products too. One should visit the Venetian Harbour, which was of course built by the Venetians near the end of the sixteenth century. In this harbour, you may spot Italian notes, as well as the famous lighthouse that is the symbol of the city of Chania. This lighthouse was damaged by the Turk invasion and was rebuilt in the nineteenth century. It goes also by the name “Egyptian lighthouse” since it was repaired by the Egyptians, when they occupied Crete by helping the ottoman empire. One shouldn’t miss Firkas Fortress, which is the fortress that was built to protect the Venetian Harbour. Built in 1629, it still stands proud and next to it Is the Maritime Museum and a small theatre. Two other museums that everyone that loves history must see, are the Byzantine Museum and the Nautical Museum. The first one will mostly teach you about Saint George and his deadly battle with the dragon and the second one houses old relics of shipping, even dating back to the Bronze age. Don’t forget to admire the golden sunset from the Venetian port which is majestic and one of a kind.

It is also full of beach bars and clubs, giving it a great nightlife too full of young people roaming the streets.
