Remarkable view

This probably one of the most beautiful places in Rethymno town. It is so nice, especially at night. We really enjoyed ourselves walking through the harbour.

So much history
Jun 2021 • Couples
I suppose this could be considered the focal point of the town – there are so many but this one is probably the most beautiful in my opinion.

It makes an excellent photo opportunity so have your cameras and phones at the ready.

The buildings are absolutely stunning including the Venetian Lighthouse which holds centrestage. Old men fish while tourists walk by. No matter how many times you go there you see something different and beautiful. The water is just so clean!

My advice would be to go there as early as possible so you avoid the boisterous waiters trying to get you in the restaurant. They have a job to do of course but it can be a bit much later in the day you go.

Beautiful but at a price
Oct 2020 • Couples
My advice about this beautiful harbour is go early. You will still get pestered by pushy waiters as you try to edge past them but not so much. In the evening they switch into overdrive and can become mildly aggressive. This is even more annoying in these troubled times than it normally would be.

That out of the way, it is a very beautiful area.

History is all around you and the place is just stunning. The backdrop of the mountains with the sea and little boats in the foreground is something to behold.

Just a beautiful are of Rethymno

Definitely visit this part of town. The best time is around sunset as the lighting adds to the ambiance. Walk around the harbour and round the the lighthouse. The views are beautiful.

Expect some attention from restauranteurs pushing their establishments. There are “rose-sellers” too. Unless you want this, just say thank you and keep walking.

The nicest place in Rethymno
Aug 2020 • Family
Old Venetian port is the nicest location in all Rethymno in my opinion. Although is crowded also is free of Chinese souvenirs and allow to admire natural facades of old buildings. Lot of bars, restaurants and cafes. Nice place for beer or coffee
