The old town of Rethymnon is one of the best-preserved towns of the Renaissance. Lying in the heart of modern Rethymnon, it combines the oriental features of the Turkish period with Renaissance-style Venetian architecture. A stroll through the alleys of the old town is like travelling backwards in time. You can start at the Venetian harbour of Rethymnon with its fishing boats, the famous lighthouse and the tavernas with waiters inviting you insistently to choose their establishment for lunch. The Venetian harbour is the ideal starting point for a tour of Rethymnon old town, as there is a convenient car park just past it in the ferry port area. The Venetian Fortezza is also close by.
Afterward you can enter the small alleyway near the middle of the harbour and you come to the Venetian Loggia.
You can continue straight on all the way along Paleologou Street until we reach the Rimondi Fountain and Platanos Square on the right
You carry straight on after the square, along Arabatzoglou Street, a picturesque alley of Rethymnon old town, known to locals as makri steno (“long alley”). At the end of the street is the pretty church of Our Lady of the Angels.You turn left after the church into Vernardou Street, with the Historical & Folk Museum of Rethymnon a little further on. A few yards further down the same street is the Nerantze Mosque. You can walk along Ethnikis Andistaseos Street to the Church of St Francis in a small alley. You walk along Ethnikis Andistaseos Street to the Porta Guora, the Great Gate of Rethymnon.
From this point you can either turn back towards the Loggia or continue left along Gerakari Street to the Platia Heroon (Heroes’ Square) and the Statue of the Unknown Soldier. Take either Arkadiou Street (left) to the Loggia, or the coast road to the left to return to the Venetian harbour. If you take Arkadiou Street, we admire the Kara Musa Pasha Mosque at the entrance to the street.
Along Arkadiou Street are some of the most beautiful Venetian mansions of Rethymnon.
Along the Rethymnon coast road there are lots of tavernas and cafeterias if you want to eat something, cool off with a soft drink or revive yourself with a frappe iced coffee.
