    Recommended by others, I walked from my hotel in Crete to the workshop. My effort paid off handsomely. I was warmly greeted by Michalis. Michalis generously spent his time to educate me on the history of the shop and the process of making lyre and other Greek traditional instruments. I truly enjoyed the music he played for me during the demonstration.
    I highly recommend a visit to this workshop when you are in Crete to learn more about Cretan beautiful music and culture.

    Have been to Chania old town a few times over the years we have always found something new to see. The shops, restaurants, bars, the old market, the small backstreets where the old houses are now being renovated some into ABB’s. Lots of choice of different restaurants for different budget’s. Sightseeing and shopping. Taxi ranks or bus stations for local buses or further afield. Nice place to visit again and again.

    We were welcomed by the owners of this pottery boutique. Their passion for ther work can be seen in the objects that they sell. Every piece of pottery is created in the traditioal way using methods that have been passed down from generations.
    Yet the result is extremly modern and fits in perfectly with our home decoration today.

    This is in the heart of the historic pedestrian area of the town, the lion fountain is just in front and the Town Hall a few meters away. The art exhibition changes so always something different to see. It is housed in a former basilica.

    We have visited this place every year since 2019 and always a new piece of pottery to remind us of our stay and have trouble deciding what to take as there is so much choice. Staff are always very friendly and helpful and always package up your purchases well. See you next year

    This souvenir shop is worth a visit…it’s unique to all the other shops in Rethymno. The owner Eleni works with 20 different Greek artists/vendors that only sell to one shop per major city. You will find really nice ceramic pieces an other nice souvenirs!

    We found it by chance, near the Catholic church and up some stairs. I see others paid entry but we didn't seem to get asked for any money.
    It's an odd assortment of artefacts, nothing too stunning. But worth a look. No explanations in English so treat it as a floor of pot pouri
    There's a lady doing stunning embroidery of rural village life scenes. The bigger ones take her 3 months each and they are impressive. All from her imagination she said. It's worth going just to see these pieces

    Quality products and a beautiful shop. The tinctures are strong and well labeled, and the herbs nicely dried. If I lived nearby I would be a regular customer for surea

    There is lot of small shops and mainly with a leather. I guess if it is made of leather you will find it there. It is crowded but nice and fun and everybody want to sell you something.

    During our holiday in Chania we have visited this very nice jewelry shop. Immefiately we received a very warm welcome by this nice family.
    From the first moment I was impressed by their handmade jewelry and their customer friendliness. It is clear that they hold their customers in high esteem and go out of their way to make them happy. Thanks to their great service we have a very beautiful souvenir, reminding us from a wonderful holiday.
    In short, our experience at Alexia Jewelry was perfect and I would definitely recommend this jeweler to others. Thanks again for the great service!
