Charming by day, busy & spectacular by night. Lovely lanes, alleyways & courtyards. Packed to the brim with shops, bars, restaurants & tavernas. I loved this place & would re-visit it again & again.

Nice little town but I felt the buildings looked very tatty and too packed together. There are some very nice shops. Although there was quite a whiff of sewage

The old town in Rethymnon is quite nice, does what it says on the tin - An old town. A lot of restaurants and some niche shops are situated in this area.

You need 2-3 evenings to discover all streets. And a few other days to discover more. Try to visit nice sun set restaurant on the opposite side of Fortezza

The prices of the restaurants at the harbour are very expensive! I advise to eat at Giorgoupolis or in Rethymnon but not directlly in the harbour.

You must feel the ambiance of this old quater, with narrow roads, with smells from distant places, crossing with people from all over the world
