Take a walk out when you visit the harbour. Great views of Chania and the bay. Perhaps avoid the middle of the day when th3 sun is hottest...

A lot of to see and many small shops. We took a taxi from Gerani to Chania Old town for 22-25 Euros and it took about 20 minutes. We visited old town, mosquée and Venetian Lighting house. Great view and family vacation.

This is an area that takes you to medieval Europe and makes you imagine the life then. Very interesting place to visit and spend some time.

Calculate approx. 1hour with kids to go round the harbor and come back. Balancing on the wall or climbing the rocks outside the wall on the seaside gives everybody a kick and is an alternative to the boring "lets have a walk to the lighthouse!"

Overall we had a nice walk to the light house. You get a real good view of the shops and restaurants from light house. If you are bringing a child, leave stroller in the car. Uneven surfaces make it impossible to push.

Fifteen minutes at the most, it's a short distance for an able bodied walker.
