Rethymno town, the capital of Rethymno, is the center of activities. Strongly influenced by the Venetians, it boasts elegant architecture and a picturesque port.
The town still maintains its old aristocratic appearance, with buildings dating from the 16th century, arched doorways, stone staircases, Byzantine and Hellenic-Roman remains, narrow streets and the Venetian harbor filled with fishing boats and lined with taverns.

Start with a visit to the old town, where you can marvel at the medieval and Venetian architecture, pop into a traditional taverna, and wander cobbled alleyways filled with local shops.
Rethymnon's Venetian harbor, with its Egyptian lighthouse, is also a must-visit. It's one of the most beautiful places you can see in town, and you can combine the scenery with a coffee at one of the seaside cafes just for the atmosphere.

From there, make the short journey to the Fortezza, a 16th-century Venetian fortress that was captured by the Ottomans in 1646.

You can't miss it - the Fortezza is visible from nearly every corner of Rethymnon and offers panoramic views of the city and west coast.

If you are in town on a Thursday or Saturday morning, you can check out the open-air market, called the Laiki, while those in town on Wednesday afternoon can visit the farmer's market.
