    Where to stay in Rethymnon

    A growing number of visitors to Rethymnon choose to stay in one of the surrounding villages, where air-conditioned rooms near well-developed beaches cost considerably less than in the city itself. The elegant guesthouses just outside town provide a quiet night's sleep, as well as quick access to good shopping and dining options. If you prefer to stay in the thick of things, book a room near the city's Venetian port, a lively area that's just a walk away from the center's major attractions.
