Fascinating Chania is a mixture of Turkish and Venetian architecture. Take a stroll in the old town through narrow streets and alleys surrounded by mansions and arches, mosques and minarets towards the beautiful Venetian harbor. The town has an exceptional atmosphere and it is no wonder that Chania is considered to be one of the most beautiful towns in Crete.Chania is the site of the Minoan settlement the Greeks called Kydonia, the source of the word quince. It appears on Linear B as ku-do-ni-ja.[2] Some notable archaeological evidence for the existence of this Minoan city below some parts of today's Chania was found by excavations[3] in the district of Kasteli in the Old Town. This area appears to have been inhabited since the Neolithic era. The city reemerged after the end of the Minoan period as an important city-state in Classical Greece, one whose domain extended from Chania Bay to the feet of the White Mountains. The first major wave of settlers from mainland Greece was by the Dorian Greeks who came around 1100 BC
