Chania is the top destination on the island and not without reason, since every year it gathers the largest number of visitors.
Both within the city and in the wider area of the district, there are invariably the marks of the conquerors, which is an integral part of history since nowadays.
In the most fertile part of the island, where agriculture and animal husbandry occupy the majority of the locals and combined with the increasing trend of tourism, an alternative form of tourism has been created in recent years. Next to the traditional olive mills and wineries of the area, well-organized and sophisticated units were created that offer a complete experience of culinary interest for visitors.
Moreover, it is noteworthy the natural wealth of western Crete as well. The 13 km long Samaria gorge, Kourna lake, the Venetian fortress at Fragokastelo, the Balos lagoon and the much-photographed beach at Elafonisi are some of the most beautiful touches in the masterpiece of Crete.
