Our cruise ship docked at the port of Souda which I believe is about 10 kilometres from Chania centre. Local buses do a shuttle service to Chania to cater for the cruise passengers and it is only 3.00 euros return. On the way in the town looks pretty run down in places, but it all changes when you get to the town centre. We spent our time wandering around the harbour area and the shops around the narrow streets of the old town.
Loads of lovely restaurants (or Tavernas) around the old town and harbour area. We stopped for a drink in one of the harbour restaurants and it was very reasonable. Only 5.60 euros for a beer and a glass of wine and it came with some nibbles .. sliced apple and mixed nuts.
Would plan to return here for a holiday.
