Walking around Rethymnon Old Port with John Carr!
During my trip in Crete I decided to visit the wonderful old port and town of Rethymnon.
Rethymnon is one of the most piscturesque and best-preserved towns of the Renaissance. The old port lying in the heart of modern Rethymnon and combines the oriental features of the Turkish period with Renaissance-style Venetian architecture. At the old port of Rethymno, you see and admire the 17th century old Venetian Castle named “Fortezza”.
The old port offers to visitors a lot of shops to buy some souvenirs or everything you want. Moreover, you can enjoy the Cretan traditional cuisine at the local restaurants and taverns or enjoy your drink at the several cafes and bars that the town offers.
The Venetian Harbor of Rethymnon is the most vibrant part and a point of reference for visitors to the beautiful city of Crete, which will give you countless photographic clicks, memorabilia of your stay in the picturesque destination.
