The city of Chania lies at the east end of the Gulf of Chania, a wide embayment between the Akrotiri peninsula in the east and the Spatha peninsula (also called Rodopos) in the west. Kastelli Hill is a prominent landform within the city, which hill was a center of the ancient city of Kydonia. It covers a significant part of the small Plain of Chania and borders with the hilly suburbs of Profitis Ilias, Agios Mattheosand Kounoupidiana towards the east, with the villages of Vamvakopoulo,Nerokourou, Mournies and Perivolia towards the south and with thecoastal areas of Chryssi Akti and Agioi Apostoloi towards the west.

The city enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate,with sunny dry summers and mild rainy winters. During the periodbetween April and October, clear-sky weather is almost an everydayfeature. The atmosphere is always warm, but fierce heat waves(temperatures above 38°C) are not very common, since the prevailing Etesian winds ("Meltemia") blow from northern directions and pleasantlymoderate the conditions. Intervals of sunny days are frequent duringthe windy and rainy winter as well. Snow and frost are rare near thecoast, with very few exceptions, like the snowstorm on 13 February 2004,when 10-30 cm of snow accumulated in the urban area, causing generalchaos. However, such cold days can be followed by much warmer and sunnyweather. Even minor early heat waves can occur in March or April,during a Saharan dust event, whose main feature is the strong and hot katabatic southerly wind, which is a type of Sirokos (σιρόκος) and is called "Livas" (i.e. the wind from Libya) by the Greeks. Such events happen only a couple of times a year, and their duration is never more than 1 or 2 days.

Chart to the left is based on data recorded during 1958-1997.Absolute maximum temperature ever recorded was 42,5°C, while absoluteminimum ever recorded was 0°C. However, the record minimum was brokenon 13 February 2004 when the temperature reached -1°C at midday.
