Rethymno

The Prefecture of Rethymnon is the heart of the island of Crete and is one of the most beautiful places in Greece. Rethymnon awaits you with clear blue seas and Mount Psiloritis, there are traces of a civilisation that dates back 4,500 years, numerous Byzantine churches and monasteries, enchanting Venetian monuments, the most well-preserved Renaissance city in Greece, with endless beaches, caves, gorges and unique flora and fauna. Rethymnon and its villages are live postcards, which are pervaded by the aroma of Cretan cuisine and the sound of the Cretan lyre. People live here amidst nature and emotions, outside the code of behaviour found in big cities. No matter where you go, be it even to the most isolated village, our people will open their doors to you to treat you to a "tsikoudia" and befriend you. Rethymnon is the homeland of Zeus, the god of Hospitality. The great number of visitors who return repeatedly confirms the words of the poet: ”Rethymnon is not a place where you go to, but a place where you return”. This is what we offer you as an alternative for your holidays and we invite you to discover it...
