The province of Rethymno is a living monument of Crete’s varied and turbulent past, with significant treasures of the Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman occupations.

The best preserved Renaissance city in Greece, the Old Town of Rethymno was almost entirely built by Venetians. Today it is charming and lively, lined with elegant bars, restaurants and taverns. It’s a region peppered with historic sites and natural wonders.

Endless winding mountain roads passing traditional villages and olive groves take you back in time to eras past.
