A Taste of Chania: Walking Food Tour

    Chania is a buzzing city, the old capital of Crete and one of its most historical areas. It’s packed to the brim with cultural attractions, ancient sites and historical landmarks, all loved by travelers from around the world. But did you know that it’s also a foodie hotspot? Enjoy A Taste of Chania with the whole family, heading out on a Walking Food Tour around the city and discovering its tasty secrets.

    Your tour takes place on the streets of Chania alongside a professional guide. While you wander down the narrow cobblestone alleys and past the famous landmarks, you’ll be able to stop and taste traditional Cretan delicacies in places known only to the locals. It’s the perfect way to make the most of your time in the city!

    On the tour, you’ll visit the open market of Chania, a century-old establishment that’s keeping the traditions of the old world alive. There, you’ll get to sample some local produce, snacks and beverages, with time for chatting to the vendors or buying some treats to take home.

    Next, it’s off to the Old Town of Chania, a beautiful area with perfectly preserved historical architecture. You’ll pay a visit to the many Venetian and Ottoman monuments, hearing stories about the famous people who once called this place home.

    To complete your culinary experience, you’ll be able to meet some local artisans in their workshops, who’ll introduce you to their work and share their experiences about life on the island. The tour also includes a meal of Cretan mezes, with fresh, locally grown produce.
