All of the area's main sights, such as the characteristic Lighthouse, Chania’s long – standing emblem, market hall and Maritime Museum are within a comfortable strolling distance from Vranas Residenza.
There are numerous restored Venetian townhouses in Chania, which have been converted into boutique hotels and Vranas Residenza is the prime and bright example of such renovation.
