Chania, Crete: An unexpected delight!

Chania is located about 7 Km east of Souda Bay, on the north coast of Crete. The area is mostly known for its military installations with both Hellenic and NATO bases positioned on its Akrotiri peninsula. However, the area is increasingly being seen as a popular tourist destination with many people wanting to explore the areas rich heritage and ancient historical sites.

Athens: Exploring the Ancient Sites

As well as being the capital and largest city in Greece, Athens is also one of the oldest cities in the world with landmarks dating back to the 5th Century BC. However it doesn’t seem to get the same attention as the likes of Paris, Rome or London. Many people including myself have a love hate relationship with the city, on one hand it has the history, culture, beaches and nightlife to happily satisfy most tourists, but it’s also extremely busy, densely populated, plagued by traffic jams and pollution. However even with this in mind, I find it one of the most fascinating cities in Europe and believe it’s a city not to be missed.
