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.

A beautful holiday in Crete - summer 2018

5 of 5
A beautiful villa! From the start, the booking was easy and the owner’s family were very responsive and accommodating to all our enquiries right up to our day of departure. Despite being a late flight we were welcomed with a smile not forgetting their gorgeous homemade cheese pies and local greens’ pies all washed down with the family’s own raki! The villa’s own olive oil is also very tasty and a delight. Look out for the fresh bread man and his van at 10:20 you’ll hear him pipping. The owners were very helpful during our stay but not intrusive and made sure we had an enjoyable stay. We were an extended family of eight and the villa easily accommodated all of us without being in each other’s laps. There were three children in our party and the villa was perfect for their enjoyment (and ours) from the clean swimming pool, swings, basketball net and the wifi connected PC. There are even two bicycles, which we used to ride into the local villages albeit in the relative cool of the morning and evening. The location is beautiful with fantastic views of Crete’s mountains and interior. The rural location is very relaxing and peaceful but Rethymnon is only about 25 minutes away by car and there’s even a daily bus service! The beach is a similar distance away. The local village is a typical relaxing Cretan agricultural village, we enjoyed walks to and through the village and were invited for drinks in the local café by very generous and welcoming local residents. To summarise we had a beautiful holiday, the villa was perfect for our every need and the owners made sure we enjoyed our stay and had a truly wonderful time, which we did! We thank them for letting us enjoy and stay in their villa and also for all their hospitality from the olive oil to the lovely gifts at the end of our stay, we hope to see you again soon – the Lewis’, August 2018.
