Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Rethymnon, Rethymnon, Rethymnon Prefecture, Crete

• RETHIMNON (This region as a whole is rich with ancient history, most notably through the Minoan civilisation. Today's old town is almost entirely built by the Venetians. It is one of the best preserved old towns in Crete.)
This region as a whole is rich with ancient history, most notably through the Minoan civilisation centred at Kydonia east of Rethymno. Rethymno itself began a period of growth when the Venetian conquerors of the island decided to put an intermediate commercial station between Heraklion and Chania, acquiring its own bishop and nobility in the process. Today's old town (palia poli) is almost entirely built by the Republic of Venice. It is one of the best-preserved old towns in Crete.


Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Rethymnon, Rethymnon, Rethymnon Prefecture, Crete

The town still maintains its old aristocratic appearance, with its buildings dating from the 16th century, arched doorways, stone staircases, Byzantine and Hellenic-Roman remains, the small Venetian harbour and narrow streets. The Venetian Loggia houses the information office of the Ministry of Culture and Sports. A Wine Festival is held there annually at the beginning of July. Another festival, in memory of the destruction of the Arkadi Monastery, is held on 7–8 November.
The city's Venetian-era citadel, the Fortezza of Rethymno, is one of the best-preserved castles in Crete. Other monuments include the Neratze mosque (the Municipal Odeon arts centre), the Great Gate (Μεγάλη Πόρτα or “Porta Guora”), the Piazza Rimondi and the Loggia.
The town was captured by the Ottoman Empire in 1646 during the Cretan War (1645–69) and they ruled it for almost three centuries. The town, called Resmo in Turkish, was the centre of a sanjak (administrative part of a province) during Ottoman rule.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Chania Town, Chania Town, Chania Prefecture, Crete

• CHANIA (is the second largest city of Crete and the capital of the Chania regional unit. The modern part of Chania is where most locals live and work. It is less traditional than the old town, but there are still areas of charming beauty or of some historical interest. )
Chania is the site of the Minoan settlement the Greeks called Kydonia, the source of the word quince.
