Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / Crete / Rethymnon Prefecture / Rethymnon / Old Venetian Harbour of Rethymno
The beating heart of Chania, Old Venetian Harbour of Rethymno was once an important port. The Venetian shipyards still stand, but today they're home to hip restaurants and bars constructed to follow the curve of the harbor. The wide pathways around the harbor provide room for the crowds of visitors that come for romantic strolls near the water. A small mosque in the center hosts traveling vendors offering traditionally made handicrafts. Consider a stay at one of the many hotels with a view of the sea.

The restaurants are very nice if not a bit pricey . The high pressure sales are a bit annoying . If your prepared to take a wander there are many other places to eat that offer the same , without the view of course , at a more respectable price .
Nice view, but a tourist trap.
Pleasant surroundings as per harbours go, just too many restaurant workers pestering you to eat/drink at their establishment.
One of the most picturesque spots of the town.
Lovely atmosphere plenty of restaurants friendly staff
