Chania : Michelin's recommendations
Barely do you reach the outskirts of Haniá than you get a big surprise: a hectic, noisy, industrial town. So you head for the harbour where a second surprise awaits - pleasant this time: you discover an attractive town with Venetian façades, an Ottoman mosque and a quiet roadstead. Although you may feel that you never want to leave, you'll find that you return to modern Haniá - even if it is just to mingle in the market or wander around Platía 1866, the working-class heart of town - and you will realise that one cannot exist without the other.
