The Venetian port

hania chania old port venetian harbour

The pretty old port of Hania, looking wonderfully inviting in the spring.

Don't you think this place should be a part of the protected heritage of the world???

The go-ahead for its restoration has recently been given; let's see how they will spruce it up.


  1. Sure. World heritage for sure. Good luck.
    Enjoy your water. (I miss being near a body of water.)
    Happy spring.

  2. It's a long time since I've been to Hania and that's exactly how I remember it. Glad to see it's not changed :-)

  3. Maria,

    love the new blog!

    I miss Hania so bad!


  4. I miss Crete so much. It's been ages from the last time i visited the island (nine years ago).
    I'm lucky we have the Cretan community here and i "take a little taste" of my home land. But it's not the same.

  5. I want to seat there and eat some fish!

  6. I'll bet it's a dream to be there at sunset, the breeze coming off the water. It's a beautiful sight. Yes, save it, save it all.

  7. Indeed it should be protected and appreciated.

  8. As long as they don't wreck the atmosphere with a marina.

  9. Hi Maria! TGIF and a holiday here!!
    The Venetian port is a beautiful spot in Hania and your picture is much nicer than my lousy ones... ;)
    Lovely place!
    Blogtrotter is still turning around Vilnius. Enjoy and have a great long weekend!

  10. Beautiful!!!!Wish I was there.
    Of course it should be saved. H Kritiki mboroun!!!
    Kalo Mina :)

  11. When I was planning a visit to Crete, deciding where, in the short amount of time I would have, to stay, it was Hania that called me. I loved it even off season.

  12. Yes it should be preserved...such class and beauty is hard to come by these days.
    Was Bouboulina having lunch at one of these?
