Welcome to Rethymno!
Welcome to a real world of miracles!
Whatever you have heard of Crete comes true to its extreme when we speak of Rethymno Prefecture, where words reach their limits and the beauty can only be experienced. Scenic beauty, as well as a distinct local culture, are so inviting to everyone that this region is a magnetic pole of attraction year round! Snow-capped mountain peaks, deep and narrow gorges, fertile valleys watered by the sweat of the people of Rethymno, endless golden sand beaches and the ever-changing colors of the sea contribute to a rich and relaxing surrounding, ideal for memorable vacations.
Remains of the past, which testify to the glorious history of this land through time, an intrinsically hospitable and fun-loving people, a perfect tourist network, and a very beautiful capital city (Rethymno) define the character of this part of Crete. Despite the long incoming tourism tradition of Rethymno, and despite the fact that a great number of visitors decide to, yet another time, revisit the area, there is always a new surprise round the corner, yet another hidden secret for you to discover; fascinating and thrilling, breathtaking and enticing, or relaxing and educational, Crete in general, and Rethymno in particular, are a must for the contemporary world traveler.
