Rethymnon, Crete Island: 27 reviews and 48 photos

  Rethymno's Venetian fortress
by AcornMan

The most obvious attraction in Rethymno is the Ventian fortress, situated at the tip of peninsula on which the old city is situated. There's not much left inside the fortress, but it's still very much worth your time to go in and have a look around. An hour should be enough, and don't forget to visit the two churches hidden just after you go through the main entrance up to the ramp to your right. This side of the fortress also give good views of the waterfront area of the old city.

Address: Prefecture of Rethymnon
