Chania vistas to the Levka Ori

A long 2012 Easter break with Ryanair took us to the beautiful city of Chania in Western Crete.
No hiking at all (apart from shops and streets), but lots of photographs, including the stunning range of the Levka Ori, that produces a strong impression in the southern skyline.
Will anyone name the peaks ? :)
Akrotiri, especially when seen from the lighthouse in the East, despite smaller, also looks very beautiful. The peaks barely reach 500m but there seems to be the mouth of a huge gorge.
