Hania takes the Western part of Crete, so do not be taken aback when you hear it is called the “Western Crete”. It borders only with Rethymno. As tradition goes, the main town of the province has the same name of Hania. Though tourism here keeps developing at a great pace the place is still to be discovered by the mass tourism. However a lot of guests may find it a great advantage.
