I am traveling to Crete by ferry and arriving at Heraklion on 9/6 18:30h. I plan on staying one night in Heraklion and then heading out the next day to Chania where I will stay for 3 nights. I will depart from Chania on 9/10 in the evening.
I know that it is a short amount of time for Crete, but please tell me what are the sights that are not to be missed. Any stops I should make on my way from Heraklion to Chania? I plan to rent a car. What about Chania, is it a good place to stay for 3 nights?
As for hotels I am looking at the Galaxy Hotel Iraklio in Heracklion and the Samaria Hotel in Chania. Are those good hotels?
