Hvis du ønsker å besøke Hania bare for å beundre de velkjente stedene og de berømte byggene i Gamlebyen eller i den venetianske havna, er ikke denne turen noe for deg! Det er noe alle kan gjøre, og noe du kanskje allerede har gjort! Vi vil gjøre noe annerledes sammen. Det finnes gater, bygg, høyder, severdigheter, monumenter og nabolag som bare de lokale kjenner til.
Vi vil spasere gjennom stengatene hvor venetianerne, ottomanerne og de gamle kreterne pleide å leve og arbeide..Vi vil beundre de blomsterfylte nabolagene, lære om Kretas historie, Kretas myter og tradisjoner, møte de lokale og spise som de lokale.
