Tour In Rethymno....


A very romantic tour in Rethymno. Is the only city in Crete which is built on a cape, and more specifically, “on the boundary between calmness and fierceness”. The location is eloquently described by local writer Pantelis Prevelakis. To the east stretches a vast sandy beach, while the coastline is rocky to the west. Unlike Irakleio or Hania, Rethymno never had a large port that would have made it a center of trade. But it does have a wonderful old harbor. Full of color, lined with Venetian and Ottoman buildings that have for centuries been reflected in its calm waters. It’s a place that moves slowly. The best time to explore the city is very early in the morning, when the light is perfect and the tranquility a sheer delight.

One of the most luxurious destinations in Greece. That tour in Rethymno, will welcome you with its hospitality, high standards of service and Cretan cuisine. To the east, the longest beach in Crete (12km) awaits you. Here your dreams of a luxurious beach holiday will become a reality.
