✦ Our Experience from the City of Rethymno

Rethymno Crete Island

While in this city, we decided to explore the waterfront and all the streets behind it.

As we walked through the alleys of the old town of Rethymnon,  it was evident that many buildings have preserved the Venetian, Turkish and Ottoman influences.

The stroll also led us to the Venetian fortress and the lighthouse. This is the most beautiful part of this city.

Our adventure to this city ended up on the shopping streets. Here there are numerous shops selling local products.

You can not miss a visit to this city while on the island of Crete. Another reason for you to add this to your bucket list!
