Rethymno old city

Rethymnon: The charm of a Cretan State

Rethymno city travels you into the memories of nobility of a state which has its forehead turned towards the sea.

Rethymno is a city located in the center of the island of Crete connecting the past and present. It ideally combines sea and mountain landscapes. Rethymno’s old town is stitched by cobbled streets and shady squares. Spread along the formed mazes one admires colored neoclassical houses, and mansions with flowered balconies.

The old Venetian Port lays where almost all streets lead, and above all stands the imposing castle of Fortezza. Is it possible not to fall in love with a city like this?
