Beautiful Chania was built around its Venetian Harbor and its 15th century lighthouse. Your five-hour adventure makes the most of your time in Chania with a guided tour that includes a walk through the Old Town and a visit to the local marketplace and botanical gardens. Begin with a motorcoach ride, and with the assistance of your local guide, take in its historical highlights and architectural charm. Navigate your way towards the center of Chania and walk around the Old Town, visiting the "agora," or marketplace, where you can find all sorts of herbs, locally produced honey and more. After your guided tour, you can enjoy some free time to shop and explore. Then, it's on to the lush, Botanical Gardens of Crete. Stroll the 200-square-kilometer grounds along pathways that meander through spectacular vegetation, blooming flower beds, water features and wildlife. Here, you'll also experience a demonstration of a traditional Cretan dish. As the meal is prepared, learn about its ingredients and sample some of the locally produced wines. A light lunch will follow before returning to the port.
