This is my cup of tea.
Walking around the old town of rethymno and just wandering until my hearts content.
This is just one reason why me and the wife love Greece and its islands.

Pretty views of the harbour especially at night. Visited a few times and locals were super helpful. Quaint cobbled streets with lots to look at and buy.

Shopping for souvenirs and silver jewellery was a pleasure here. So many shops to browse, lovely cafes and tavernas.

I particularly recommend “Orthonas Taverna” to eat at. My husband had an “out of this world” steak. He also ate amazingly fresh fish. I loved the restaurant and it was the best bit of our visit to the Old Town. Loved sitting in the sun here. Prawns cooked by the owner were divine. Really delicious vegetable dishes and the most wonderful carob bread and tasty deserts. Such highl quality food served with passion, my experience was a gourmet meal served by such lovely unassuming staff.

Beautiful old town, suitable for both day and night. Lots of shops, cafes and resturants. It comes alive at night and is picture perfect. Watch out for the flower girls targeting tourists.

We didn't spend much time in this pretty old place but we did enjoy walking around and seeing the street and churches. We really liked the fortress and the fountain.

Very beautiful old town. You should totally walk in the paths, admire the old houses and buy traditional products from the shops.
