Car Rental in Rethymnon
General Information about Rethymnon
Rethymnon (Rethimno), one of the four provinces of Crete, is a town that has retained its traditional look. You can confirm this as you stroll through its old, narrow lanes with the wooden balconies, the tall minarets and the Venetian mansions.
The town is divided into the old and the new town. The new one is built in a comfortable spacious and planned manner and with plenty of green spots, but as usual, the best strolls are made in the old town's small alleys. The city-limits are defined by Fortetza the well-preserved, huge Venetian fortress which imposingly overlooks the city.

Some of the city's attractions are below:
The Fortress or "Fortezza":
This was built on the Palaeokastro hill by the Venetians, between 1573 and 1580, in order to strengthen the defences of the harbour, which was so important to them. It had strong walls and four bastions. Inside the fortress there were public buildings, barracks, storerooms for ammunition and an army hospital.
Archaeological Museum of Rethymnon:
It contains most important finds. Among them: figurines, jewellery, tools, spearheads of Neolithic times from the Gerani cave and the Ellenes Amariou cave.
