  • We started with the Museum, to get a better overview of the history and significance of the historic site. The finds are remarkable and versatile. The actual site is also interesting and is going through in 15-20 minutes. You should take the time and to go to the Museum on the site of the historic Castle Tower (ruins) at the exit. Follow the directions to the cisterns. There walk 5 minutes over a rocky but beautiful way with panoramic views to the ruins. Our son is 7 j. and found it very interesting, but just the last stop is not suitable without protection on the slopes and therefore quite small.

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.
