Description

Get to know Crete without the help of a guidebook! Immerse yourself into the fascinating culture, history and traditions of Rethymnon on a walking tour of its old town. Get a glimpse of Rethymnon from a local's perspective as you explore the city from its classic historical sites to local craftsmen and vendors.

Start the tour at Rethymnon's great Orthodox Church to admire the iconography of the church. Find out the significance of the church to the history of the island while you listen how Cretan culture was kept alive despite its different conquerors.

From there, walk your way through Sabbionara reaching the old Ottoman district. Notable for its impressive door frames and mix of stories, marvel at the Mosque of Kara Mousha Pasha and St. Francesco Church alongside Venetian mansions, temples turned to mosques and the Turkish school.

Discover the incredible flavors of Cretan cuisine. Get a chance to learn the secrets of the popular Cretan diet, taste delightful local treats such as traditional koulouri, a sesame seeded bread ring, and cheese and olives and sip some local wine.

Then, head towards the streets of the old city and check out the most important monuments in the historical center. Admire the fountains, historic homes and the grand Fortezza representing Rethymnon's cultural and aesthetic character.
