A lovely town to wander round. Lots of little alleyways with interesting shops and restaurants. You feel like you've gone back in time when you look down some little streets! Great fortress to explore too, but very hot in the middle of the day in August! The market was great too - yummy fresh fruit and veg!

Loved the area of Rethymnon, lots of nice shops, includin expensive designer shops, resturants and bars good too but look out for the fish resturants, they offer u a fish and you think u r payin then price on the menu but it goes by weight of the fish which they dont tell u, our bill was about 3 times...

So nice to stroll around and discover small plakas with Venetian and Greek stones and atmosphere, it looks like history comes back to life at any corner

A beautiful place to visit with interesting shops, the spectacular Venetian Harbour and some good restaurants if you avoid the seafront ones where the owners harass you to come in. To eat try Lomonkipas, Alana, or Peperoncino.

Very good atmosphere. Old town is alive in the evening. Streets are full of people and shops. You can find an intimate restaurant in alleys and party place near to harbor. Also a lot of historial places. But be careful of beaters and matchsticks - good restaurants don't practice such methods.

Nice place to visit and walk and explore the many traffic free roads, alleys and walkways. Just a shame about all the graffiti. Lovely old building covered in flowers (and scrawl). :-(
