The Prefecture of Rethymno is the heart of the island of Crete and is one of the most beautiful places in Greece. Rethymno, the most well preserved Renaissance town in Greece awaits you with its clear blue seas, Mount Psiloritis and its endless history, myths and legends. There are traces of a civilisation dating back almost 4,500 years, numerous Byzantine churches and monasteries, enchanting Venetian monuments, endless beaches, caves, gorges and unique flora and fauna. No matter where you go, be it even to the most isolated village, the cretans will open their doors to treat you to a "tsikoudia" and befriend you.
