As you wander through the old town, chances are you’ll end up at the Venetian Harbor. This is one of the most beguiling areas of the entire town. Calm, crystal-clear water; small boats tied up; and schools of fish always looking for a handout make for a postcard perfect setting.

Surrounding the harbor is a wonderful assortment of restaurants serving traditional Cretan cuisine. At night, the area is tastefully lit and a perfect spot for a romantic dinner with the warm gentle breezes of the Mediterranean blowing in.

On the far side of the harbor stands a 13th-century breakwater, and at the far end is a 17th-century lighthouse.
