While in Chania don't miss Samaria gorge. It's the nicest gorge in Europe. You must get up very-very early the morning (around 05.00), take a local bus for Omalos at 5.30 and go to Samaria gorge. It's around 8 hours of normal walking for traverse it The final destination is the sea, from where you are going by ship to Sfakia village and then by local bus, late the evening, back to Chania. A link for infos on Samaria gorge: http://www.creteisland.gr/samaria/ And if you have a car, you can go visit (and why not stay a day there?) a unique place: the village Milia. It's a place you can find the absolute quietness and to live for a while in 19th century. Have a look at their site: http://www.ellada.net/mhlia/index.html I stayed there for 3 days and it was a unique experience, one of the best things I have done in my life.
