Rethymnon town is at the western Crete between Chania and Heraklion city. After you enter the city we recommend that you drive towards the harbour and park your car at the controlled parking area of Marina by the sea. We also recommend that you have a map of the city with you. Your walk starts at the beach of Rethymnon where there are many cafes if you want to have a coffee by the sea. After you walk the beach road you can visit the Fortezza (castle) and enjoy the view to the sea. Rethmnon old town is another beautiful spot you can go to. In the graphic alleys of the old town you can find many restaurants, tavernas, cafes, stores with local products and souvenir shops. After you visit the old town you can walk southern to the city center where you can shop clothes, accessories for travelers and books. Old town of Rethymnon is also beautiful during the night. In Rethymnon town there is also the option for swimming. The beach we recommend is blue flagged and is five minutes of walking east from the Marina controlled parking area.
