Description

We’ll start our Chania tour the local way: with a coffee and a taste of one of the most traditional pastries of Crete, in the most traditional place in town. We’ll enjoy a bit of bougatsa (a cheese-filled pastry) in a shop that’s been loved by locals for years.

Fuelled up after our breakfast, we’ll drive in a private vehicle for about 15 minutes to reach our destination: a unique part of town that’s completely dedicated to the work of local artisans.

You’ll visit several of the artisans who live and work in this area, and learn about the importance and local impact that crafts such as pottery and clay have had in the history of the island.

You’ll also get to test out your own artistic skills, at a ceramics workshop! Talk to the local artist about their techniques and browse through their unique pieces. You’ll learn tips and tricks for finding the best and most authentic souvenirs, so the next time you’re out shopping in Chania, you’ll know what to look for.

We’ll uncover various works such as religious paintings, handmade jewellry and unique objects made of wood, glass or other more unusual materials.

By the end of this Chania shopping tour, you’ll have a better understanding of the authentic crafts of Crete, and how they represent the island’s local culture.
