Polixeny's Suites is located at the heart of the old town of Chania. Chania is admittedly one of the most beautiful towns in Greece, as it is considered a mosaic of cultures, flavours, history, mountainous and coastal landscapes. But it's the people that play the most important role in the town's developments.
Your visit in Chania will surely start and end in the Venetian Harbour, one the most beautiful places in town. However, the Old Town will too make a great impression featuring a fountain, a stonepaved square, traditional houses, the Splantzia neighbourhood and St. Nicolas church, the hill of Kastelli -the old acropolis- as well as the iconic Venetian Neoria (arsenal), some of which have been turned into cultural centers. On the other hand, the new town featuring the Municipal Gardens and the aristocratic neighbourhood of Chalepa adds its own special charm to Chania. Here, guests can visit the house of Eleftherios Venizelos.
Shopping options are available in the indoor Municipal Market of Chania, as well as in Machairadika and Stivanadika, where visitors can find handmade leather goods and samples of traditional Cretan costumes. And when the night falls visitors ought to make a stop in Kum Kapi lined with a wealth of restaurants, cafes and bars. Those of you who wish to party till dawn can head to the clubs of Platanias.
