We enjoyed walking around the Old town so much to see and we found a great little shop across the road from the Municipal Gardens making great filled rolls and lovely cakes which we bought and returned there several times .
You can book a boat trip at the harbour and you can walk up to the Fortress (have to be careful when you get near as the road is uneven).
There are plenty of shops but no-one pesters you to buy,there is a even a 1 euro shop which had some nice things.

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!

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 :-)
