Venetian Harbour, Rethymnon
(3.6/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
The beating heart of Chania, Venetian Harbour 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. Put Venetian Harbour and other Rethymnon attractions into our Rethymnon itinerary planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It is very nice to walk along this small bridge, a little Venice, pity that the traffic is so intense

  • Nice and easy to navigate, this port armored restaurants is beautiful without the charm of Chania that I highly recommend. But throughout the site, Harbour, old town and fortress is a non-negligible attraction in this part of the ridge.

  • The harbour is picturesque while tables and chairs the ruin. The lighthouse also gives a romantic touch. Visit and the night.
