Full description
Discover the exterior of the east Venetian walls, near the sandy beaches of the Kum Kapi area, which in the old days was a village of poor North African slaves. Throughout your Segway tour, historical information will be provided from your audio-guide system. The Halepa area played an important role in the history of Crete, as the famous "Halepa Agreement" was signed on October 1878 between Ottomans and Cretans for the assignment of a limited autonomous regime in the island. You will also see traditional and beautiful buildings, as well as the Consulates of the Great Powers, the school of San Joseph (where nuns taught French and savoir vivre to the rich girls), the Palace (which was the house of the High Commissioner Prince George in 1898), and the Residence of the Prime Minister of Greece (Eleftherios Venizelos). You will also see the elegant church of Aghia Magdalene, which was built by Prince George and dedicated to Mary Magdalene in commemoration of a visit of his sister Maria to Chania, the wife of the Grand Duke of Russia. Before your tour ends, you will be able to enjoy a small tasting in the district of Splantzia.
