I’m not saying that the middle of nowhere is necessarily a bad thing, and for many of you I’m sure it’s the only place to be. But for this girl from the concrete jungle who’d rather dodge cars and motos than goats and sheep, the wide open expanses of the great outdoors can be a bit daunting.
Our second tour of Chania took us out of Old Town, out of the city of Chania and into the prefecture for a taxi tour with Lefteris.
Last week, in between scorching days at the beach, cocktail hour, and more than a few 3 hour dinners, we found some time to do two tours of Chania. One of Old Town Chania, one of the Akrotiri Peninsula. One by foot, one by car. Both private tours. Both worth every penny.
We couldn’t have picked a better place. Out of what I am guessing are hundreds of small hotels and pensions in Old Town Chania, it was a shot in the dark. But the cute blue, yellow and terracotta building in the equally charming alley captured my attention.
Sightseeing and shopping, the sun and the sea. Our Greek summer vacation begins in Chania, Crete.
