Crete – discover the secret of good life on your holiday
Created by Mondo for Finnair
Wild herbs, honey and local olive oil. Octopus salad. Fresh tomatoes and plump olives. Snails and rabbit stew. Fresh fish. A glass of wine. The traditional Cretan diet is considered one of the healthiest in the world.
And the old town in Chania must be the best place to tuck into Cretan fare. Even the Greeks themselves know it: Chania is a unique city and widely thought to be the prettiest city break destination in Greece.
The Old Venetian Harbour is lined with pastel and ochre coloured houses and cafés and bars to while away the evening. The best restaurants, however, can be found in the narrow streets of the old town. The narrower the alley, the better.
A few kilometres outside the town begins the long stretch of sandy beaches, and the mountains forming a magnificent backdrop to the city invite visitors on nature or hiking holidays with the heady scent of wild herbs. In Chania you will understand the secret to a good life: good food, blue sea and a healthy dose of the great outdoors.
