Places to Visit

The Fortezza of Rethymnon

– The Venetian fortress of Rethymnon, almost in the centre of the old town. The giant Fortezza, with its hidden centuries of history, is visible from every corner of the town and offers panoramic views of Rethymnon and the coast to the west.

Venetian Harbour

– The Venetian harbour of Rethymnon no longer provides moorings for Venetian galleys and Turkish warships, but the fishing boats rocking on the water make a serene and pretty picture. In summer the harbour is bustling with life, as the tavernas set their tables outside and invite passers-by to try some local Greek dishes.
