Chania with Children
Children will love Chania for its narrow alleys that hide a sweets’ or ice cream shop at every corner, for horse-drawn carriages, for boat tours, and for other exciting activities that end up satisfying adult companions too. The Old Port of Chania is one of the best sites to spend time with your children, but if you are looking for more fun or educational activities, here are some of our recommendations:
Botanical Park & Gardens of Crete
You’ll find the Botanical Park & Gardens of Crete in Fournes, a mere 30-minute drive from Chania. This is a unique attraction on the island and a must-see for all.
Aqua Creta Limnoupolis
Nothing spells fun like a water park. Aqua Creta Limnoupolis has slides for all ages, pools, and a lovely restaurant to tame your hunger. 15 minutes drive from Chania.
Nautical Museum of Crete
Let your kids wonder at the art of shipbuilding and see a replica of a Minoan vessel at this museum housed in a Venetian fortress.
