Mythical Crete

The island of Zeus offers endless possibilities. From palm beaches up to 2,000 m high mountain peaks, a world renowned ancient civilization and a famous traditional cuisine. 7,000 adventurous years of history awaken the spirits of older guests and younger heroes.
 

Rethymno

Rethymnon, the third largest town on Crete, is an intriguing mixture of old-world charm and lively Cretan life. The vivacious atmosphere of the old town is just the place for a stroll on long summer evenings. The different eras and influences on the town can be seen in the unusual architecture and buildings. Around the picturesque harbour one can see the Venetian influence that later gave way to the Turkish regime. The multitude of bars, cafes, tavernas, kafenions, and discos are guaranteed to provide entertainment to suit everyone's taste.
