    Explore one of the best preserved medieval cities in Greece, and search for your fairy-tale romance. Rethymno is located in northwestern Crete and it is 56 km from the city of Chania and 81 km from the capital of Crete, Heraklion. It is one of the most important tourist destinations and the visitor can enjoy the scenic and beautifully structured city.
    Venetian fortification works harmonically with orthodox and catholic churches, mosques, majestic mansions of Venetian architecture, arches and cobbled paths which create a magical atmosphere, reminiscence of the city’s turbulent –yet glorious– past.

    There are two sides to Rethymno offering two styles of visit: the endless big beach hotel strip that stretches from the east end of Rethymno - and - the Rethymno that allows you the character of the old town with its mix of architecture and history, cultural influences and styles ranging from Venetian to Ottoman empire. 

    Caretta Caretta turtles are also regular visitors along the beaches of Rethymno and return between June and August to lay their eggs each year.

    The Venetian harbour...
    Rethymno's harbour area is a fine place for a coffee at one of the cafes and perhaps you will chance to eat there, just for the atmosphere. 

    The Fortress dominates the city and makes Rethymno very photogenic, its pedestrian streets below, strewn with charming old buildings. Venetian influences abound and the minarets and domed mosques remind of the Turkish influence long gone.
    Numerous shops for souvenirs, trendy fashion or imaginative jewellery...the old and the modern combine to make a colourful and buzzing town.

You can also find unique handcrafted glass, wood and metal, along with pottery, woodwork and metalwork. It is certain that if one visited once Chania will want to come back to live unique moments again.
