Chania in the Winter | 15 Dec 2014
Chania is a perfect destination all year and possibly the most iconic and picturesque city on the island of Crete. Whilst many travelers believe the city goes into hibernation after a busy summer, it actually remains a bustling place in a more atmospheric way. It’s during the winter months that the visitors meet the true Crete. The fact that the city is less busy between the months of November and March provides the visitors to feel the pulse of the local life, enjoy the culinary secrets from a vast variety of tavernas and restaurants, enjoy the nightlife and shopping. As for the weather, sunny and warm days are normal. In fact, if you experience a rainy and overcast Chania during your stay in the winter you can rest assured that the sunny days (with a hint of spring in the air) are only a day or two away. The temperatures might be lower than during the hot and dry summer, but the winter air is fresh and crisp. Not forgetting – we have a lot of light during the winter!
