Create an itinerary including Old Venetian Harbour of Rethymno
The beating heart of Chania, Old Venetian Harbour of Rethymno was once an important port. The Venetian shipyards still stand, but today they're home to hip restaurants and bars constructed to follow the curve of the harbor. The wide pathways around the harbor provide room for the crowds of visitors that come for romantic strolls near the water. A small mosque in the center hosts traveling vendors offering traditionally made handicrafts. Consider a stay at one of the many hotels with a view of the sea.

  • Very nice small venetian harbour. Not to large. Nice place to watch the world go by. Similar to the harbour in chania. Good place to take some photos. I liked the lighthouse at the entrance.

  • An old harbor. Some walking area, mostly narrow. Careful with children. If you have a net you can catch some fish standing in water. But it is super slippery. Enjoy the views. Landscape and artifacts.

  • The restaurants are very nice if not a bit pricey . The high pressure sales are a bit annoying . If your prepared to take a wander there are many other places to eat that offer the same , without the view of course , at a more respectable price .
  • Very nice place to visit. The little streets of the old centre are cute. There is toerism but not too crowded l
