“Lovely old town full of narrow, flower filled and traffic free streets”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Best place to find fantastic local tavernas and cafes without paying the higher prices at the harbour. Lovely quiet streets off the shopping areas, beautiful flowers and a chance to occasionally peek inside the locals' homes!

“Relaxing ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Spent a couple of days in Rethymnon while on holiday in Crete . Fantastic . Its impossible not to enjoy this place from the hustle and bustle of the tiny streets of the old town to the peaceful relaxing harbour ... A visit to Zefyros on the harbour front is a must . Loved Rethymnon so much we're going back for another Ten days :-)

“A very beautiful area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

By day the Old Town is filled with many interesting little shops containing all manner of goods for sale! There are a huge selection of restaurants, cafes and bars to choose from that are open throughout the day!

It is a very interesting place to walk through during the day and a very pleasant walk in the evening.
