All around you in Rethymnon, you’ll find typical Cretan influences. Narrow streets with cosy boutiques crammed together draw the attention away from the endless colourful buildings. The local eateries, especially the ones tucked into the side streets, have a really quaint atmosphere and a startling menu of aromas.
The old port
After strolling through the decorative streets, take yourself down to the port where you’ll find plenty of culture hotspots, plus fancy restaurants serving up an eclectic selection of dishes. Fresh catch of the day specials are popular but if you have a taste for international bites, you’re in luck.
