Chania for a Day (or Eternity)

Old Port Chania -Παλιό Λιμάνι Χανιά.jpg

It said to be the most beautiful city of Crete and in the top5 of Greece in general. I agree and I can only note that  from the moment you land your foot in Chania, you somehow feel more peaceful. A feeling that somehow lasts for all the time you stay in its magical field. As if the problems bothering you could silent or even stop existing. Life in Chania rolls calmer, quieter and more humane.

Where to go :
Blue Pizzas : a special pizzeria / bar,  the pear, prosciutto, blue cheese pizza may not be your cup of tea at first sight, but in the end you will admit her deliciousness

Bazaki mini bar : Bazaki (which means “little jar” in Greek) it’s really a mini bar. It may fit maximum 12 people, but its warm and friendly atmosphere will justify you. In the summer you can seat outside too.

Bororo: in the old harbor drink one piece of cool and dapper cocktail, in the coolest glasses, while listening to the coolest of cool melodies

Koukouvagia : (meaning owl) it’s out and above Chania, offering you one of the most marvelous sights of Chania. You will discover there owl figures in the most unrespectable café’s places. In the summer drink your coffee along with its famous lemon pies and in the winter try an igloo ( pannacotta with caramel , chocolate and cookies , see below)
