“Interesting and beautiful”
Review of Venetian Harbour

Venetian Harbour
Ranked #15 of 86 things to do in Rethymnon
Certificate of Excellence
Type: Other
Attraction details
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

A stunning area with dozens of fantastic spots to get some fantastic photos, theres a dodgy old wall leading to the lighthouse which if you can you must take the opportunity to walk along it just to see the view over the harbour. The view here at night is one of the most romantic of views you could ever hope to experience. The restauranteurs are a pain trying to get your custom which spoils the experience a little, but still it was a great place to spend a few hours

A nice quiet setting with some typical Greek Restaurants. Very pretty in the evening whether having a meal of just a long drink

The old venetian port is mostly interested monument in Rethymno.
The only negative of this you can't walk through without the restaurants not to hassle you

A famous and visually attractive Venetian port, spoilt by restaurant touts soliciting for business in their over-priced establishments.

Lots of lovely fish restaurants in a spectacular setting. Fresh fish can be expensive, ensure you ask the price before you order. The restaurant staff can be more push than in other parts of the resort.
