  • We visited the Museum on 2 January 2018. Initially we did a negative impression of the erratic architecture of the Museum but said not to judge a book by the cover. We proceeded to the cashier where we saw 3 of the employees of the Museum and we were informed that photos are not allowed until the book (reasonable) and that the site is closed because there is no private (they did 3 people in Fund?). We entered the Museum and started wandering. The exhibits are extremely but their descriptions in Greek many times contained such grotesque words (I guess archaeological terminology) that I had to read English to understand. In our first attempt to Googlearoyme an unknown word flinched a keeper of the Museum on us and told us with very aggressive style that photos are not allowed. The same scene was repeated once again by another guardian of the Museum until I complained and left us alone. On one side of the Museum shows a video that connects the narratives of Homer with the Eleftherna and was truly remarkable. Icing on the cake, however, was an inscription from exhibit that had been removed for maintenance where the English translation was "Removed for conservative reasons". Anyone who has gotten lower in English can laugh.

  • The museum of Ancient Elefterna is very modern and captivating. The excavation itself is still limited in size but well. From there, a beautiful walk in the tanks. From the excavations show that the Iliad is not a myth.

  • Given the early and late Minoan pottery that was found, as well as the various remnants of buildings that can be seen throughout the territory must since about 2000 v. CHR. have been inhabited. On one side you can see the underground water cisterns that were dug out of the rock. Their size indicates the size of the ancient city. The most important finds are in the Archaeological Museum of Rethymnon. For the excavations and the Museum, the entrance fee is € 2017-6

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.
