“Nice walk”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Enjoyed walking round the old town on a miserable day. Plenty of eating places. Lots of shops have similar products but still worth a visit.

“Very atmospheric”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

A really lovely old Venetian town, lovely churches and other buildings, an old Venetian Harbour, all ovewrlooked by the Fortezza.
On the negative side, perhaps too many "touristy" shops selling poor quality goods.

“Authentic Venetian Town”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

The streets are very narrow, but be warned on 1st or 2nd days easy to get lost as all the street are similar. This is so typically Greek

“Picturesque and interesting”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Whilst the old town is interesting and well worth a visit, the jewel in the crown is Rethymnon harbour, which has the most wonderful restaurants and cafes with seating and tables right up to the harbour-side. It was difficult to pick one restaurant from another as they all look so tempting, but suffice it to say that we had the most wonderful meal at reasonable cost, watching fish swimming laziily in the water as we ate. This recollection of our holiday remains as a fond memory of our lovely holiday in Rethymnon.
