A must visit if you love Venetian architecture and old town atmosphere
Oct 2021 • Family
An amazing place to while away the day, getting lost in the cobbled streets. Wonderful food in the street tavernas. Spending a relaxed afternoon in and around the old Venetian harbour, and purchasing some local gifts.

Loved the narrow streets and activity
Sep 2021
We loved the energy of the place with its narrow streets covered by beautiful bougainvillea, and lined with shops, corner cafes, and restaurants.

There always seemed to be something interesting around every corner.

Take a stroll
Sep 2021
Lovely old town. Plenty of cobbled back streets to wander around and get away from all the tourists.

A walk around the harbour is great with plenty of places to sit and have something to eat or drink and people watch.

Best sea food

Best seafood restaurant in Rethymno. The calmar farci was perfect. And the owner is so kind! The sweetest memories from that place.

Beautiful place with everything you need.
Sep 2021
The most perfect holiday destination for any age.

It's traditional Greek whilst having modern but not tacky bars, restaurants, and shops.

Such beautiful architecture and a brilliant feel to the place, especially at night its very romantic.

Really one of the loveliest places you will ever visit.

Do not miss this gem.

Clearly a tourist trap, but intriguingly charming
Aug 2021
With narrow cobbled streets, a plethora of tourist souvenir shops, tavernas, pubs and tavernas, it still looked good. I mean, I've seen Monastiraki in Athens, the old center of Chania, and the agitated capital vibe of Heraklion and I've been to other city centers, I mean I think I know a tourist trap when I see one. But these streets in particular seemed charming, with their oleander pots and ridiculously huge climbing vines of bougainvillea in full bloom (we don't know how to pronounce that so we ended up calling them bougie ville).
Being also a curfew in place (1 am) and no music allowed, the buzzing sounds of the streets, the white noise of different voices and countless languages felt somewhat poetic and it hit nice.
