Réthymno Travel guide
Réthymno : Michelin's recommendations
The traditional character of a Cretan town, a blend of Venetian and Turkish influences, is best preserved in Réthimnon, the third largest town on Crete after Herakleion and Haniá. The old districts provide a few hours of worthwhile strolling: here are very charming old Venetian and Turkish houses, mosques and churches, peaceful alleyways, as well as the little Venetian harbour dominated by its fortress. Crafts such as weaving and embroidery are of high quality and the Wine Festival in July attracts a big crowd.
