The third largest city on Crete, built on the site of the older Rithymna, it still retains today the character of its Renaissance appearance: it is a major attraction to visitors from all over the world. Rethymnon is, without exaggeration, one of the most attractive towns in Greece, with its particular ‘colour’, its wealth of history and architecture – preserving one of the best surviving Venetian cities.

The main attractions of Rethymnon are concentrated in the Old Town, which is worth exploring without any preconceived route, but by just walking along the narrow alleys and so discovering picturesque spots, architectural treasures, old mansions and other signs of those conquerors who have passed through here.

 “Get lost” in the labyrinth of tiny Venetian and Ottoman streets. Visit local craftsmen and artisans and learn more about their handicraft. Taste some traditional Cretan flavours like traditional koulouri, pastries, and cheese and olives. Learn about different local wines at a unique wine tasting, but most of all you will wander through centuries of history and cultural influences, listening to tales, myths, and legends.
