The Gorge of Mili is just 4km / 2.5 miles long and takes approximately 2 hours. We decided, that it is the perfect destination for a short walk on a sunny yet lazy afternoon in April. We hopped into our car and drove to the...More

Even my 1,5 year old walked boldly through this walk! His older brother, 4,5, liked it even more. Wonderful sites, old mills, old tiny chapels, streams going down, kids absolutely loved this - and they also loved ice cream in the small cafe that is...More

Amazing place, just 10 minutes by car from the center of the city of Rethymno. It's about an abandoned old village inside the gorge of "Myloi". Cool, full of small rivers, ponds and trees. Amenities like wooden tables and benches for a pic-nic are available....More

We took the red hop-on/off to the gorge. Easy access to a tranquil, green and lush walk along the small creek down at the gorge. Halfway is a small tavern. In April the climate is nice, not to warm, the tavern only serve some coffee...More

There is a tourist bus that goes from Rethymnon up the gorge to a military museum & there are at least 2 stops for people to go into the gorge. The leaflet for the bus service is available all over the town.
