Things to do

Archaeological Museum of Rethymno:

Visit the Archaeological Museum of Rethymno, operated by the National Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities Conservancy. This museum is organized by excavation site, in chronological order, ranging from the Neolithic to the Roman period. The museum is situated in the Fortezza, within the pentagon-shaped building near the main entrance.

Historical and Folklore Museum of Rethymno:

The Historical and Folklore Museum of Rethymno includes handcrafted works like rugs, hand-sewn lace, and jewellery. The pieces reflect a way of life that predates technology. The museum is located west of Arkadiou and south of Konnou Paleogou.

Museum of Sea Life at Rethymno:

The Museum of Sea Life shows one of Greece's most important collections of fish, molluscs, and sponges native to the area. The museum is located on Arabatzoglou Street in the old part of town. The building is a former abbey.

Fortezza of Rethymno:

The Fortezza of Rethymno is one of the most well-preserved castles in Crete and houses a well-known Wine Festival every July. This impressive fortress is located on one of the headlands above the city, where it was incredibly useful as a military presence. Once inside, the Ibrahim Han Mosque is an absolute must-see.

Nerandzes Mosque:

The Nerandzes Mosque forms an impressive silhouette that has long been a part of the Rethymno skyline. The 17th-century building boasts a fantastic view of the entire city from the turret. Be sure to visit the minaret at the top of the mosque.

Rimondi Fountain:

Believed to have been built in 1588, the current Rimondi fountain is actually a replacement of the original. This fountain, among many others, has provided potable drinking water to residents during water shortages since the 17th century. The fountain's decorative pieces also double as practical parts of the fountain.

Weather in Rethymno

Greece's climate is Mediterranean in nature, and provides ideal holiday weather year-round, with summer temperatures reaching the mid-30s and winters in the 10-15°C range. This makes for ideally hot summer days and an extremely mild winter. Plan for copious sunshine in the summer and rainy weather in the winter. Though Rethymno lies on the Aegean Sea, the heat is dry rather than humid.

Travel to Rethymno

Travel to Rethymno is simple and straightforward. Simply fly into either Heraklion International Airport (HER) or Chania International Airport (CHQ), both located on the island of Crete. Aegean ferries run on a regular schedule, and more often during the highest tourist season. Both car-carrying ferries and catamarans run between the Cyclades Islands, Crete, and mainland Greece daily.

Not much in the village but there is a fantastic and friendly taverna. If you like rustic villages try Pigi (5 mins in car or 25 min walk). Vilia and her family were great hoasts and we would go there again - our bar b q in the courtyard was fun. Vicky, Graham and Family

The property was amazing! It was so clean and modern with all the amenities you could need. We hired the larger of the 2 properties as there was no-one in the adjoining property so the pool was our exclusive use - this villa is ideal for large families or 2 families/set of friends holidaying together. The village is lovely and quiet. You can walk there in 5 mins and there are a selection of restaurants, a couple of bars, a bakery and at least 2 supermarkets. We went in the last week of the season so it was very quiet and a few places had already closed for the season - but this did not spoil it in anyway...We found you could hire jetskis and boat rides - this we stumbled upon as the sea had been too choppy earlier in the week - great for my older kids. Valia and Roula were there for us at any time so we never felt alone. The pool was cleaned daily and housekeeping on a Wednesday - with a cake no less!! We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this location to anyone! It's a great place to get to travel about and explore the beautiful island of Crete. My family and i would for sure be back! Thank you Roula and Valia...Jan and family...
