Rethymnos’ historic center is multicultural, bustling, colorful, and well-preserved

Rethymno is steeped in history and tradition and has been inhabited since 1600 BC. 

You can trace the steps of influence from Turkish, Arabic, and Venetian domination giving Rethymno its unique cultural identity. 

Stroll along Rethymno’s narrow streets and discover our roots as you enjoy historical re-enactments.

City of Rethymno

You are invited to travel to areas, which are perhaps still unknown to the majority, and which are sometimes remote, but always magical and magnificent throughout the seasons. We recommend our visitors to see our picturesque villages through the eyes of the soul, try the Cretan cuisine, our wine and “tsikoudia”, participate in our revelries and festivities, but most importantly get to know our soul, our hospitality, the safe, untouched interior of the region, the other Rethymno.
