Rethymnon Prefecture

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  Crete  /  Rethymnon Prefecture
(4/5 based on 15,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, historic sites, nature
The mountains and the sea represent not only the main geographic features of Rethymnon prefecture, but also serve as its main tourist attractions. Most visitors begin their adventure at the prefecture's eponymous capital city, known worldwide for its old Venetian quarter, a compact neighborhood dominated by a huge medieval castle. Although this city gets very crowded at the peak of tourist season, you can always escape its hustle and bustle by venturing deeper into the mountainous countryside. The prefecture's less-frequented inland areas feature olive groves, steep gorges, and tiny hamlets, good bases for exploring the island's sandy southern coastline. Take a look at our Greece vacation trip planner to refine the details of your trip to Rethymnon Prefecture.
