The Venician lighthouse is situated in the old harbour at Chania 37 km away from Aloni Villa. From the original Venician lighthouse which dominated the entrance of the harbour, only the base survives today, built with the same sandstone as the Walls.
The present light-house, rebuilt during the Egyptian occupation (1821-1841), is different from the original and is rather reminiscent of a minaret, as regards its shape and the inside stone staircase leading to the balcony and the glass tower.
A very distinctive area of the Old Town is the harbour itself and generally the seafront ("akti"). Akti Tompazi, Akti Kountouriotou and Akti Enoseos (marina) all feature several historical buildings and a thriving nightlife.
