Best Places to Go in Greece: 1

Chania Old TownIs there anything more mysterious than Greece? The myths, the legends, the rich culture, the in depth history — it is truly a treasure, and there are so many places to go, how can you ever decide? Well, we can help, though be forewarned — we have chosen some spots off the beaten path.

We begin with Chania Old Town, which is thought to be the oldest city that is still inhabited in the entire world. That may be up for debate, but it is definitely old — more than five thousand years old — and rich in culture and history. It is located in Crete, an important place in and of itself.

Chania was Crete’s capital until 1971. There are still lots of Turkish and Venetian buildings remaining, especially around the harbor area.

Chania has an Archaeological Museum, a Byzantine Museum, and a Maritime Museum.
