The ancient town of Rethymnon in Greece is a history lover’s ideal holiday destination. The old quarter is full of architectural treasures hailing from both Venetian and Ottoman influences and makes for a fascinating day spent getting lost among the maze-like streets. But there’s more to Rethymnon than its historical significance: the new town is a vibrant, trendy and cultural area where there’s always something happening from concerts and street entertainment to art exhibitions and theatre performances. Whatever your age or interests, Rethymnon truly has something for everyone.

Another major draw of Rethymnon is its pristine coastline. It has a long sandy stretch of beach, ideal for sun lounging, with many shops, restaurants and bars running alongside and is sure to be your go-to place during the long sunny afternoons. Other attractions of Rethymnon for those looking to learn more about this town’s interesting history are the 16th century Venetian fortress, the Paleontological Museum and the Archaeological Museum. And for those with an interest in art then the Centre for Byzantine Art is a must-see.
