Car Hire in Rethymnon
General information about Rethymnon
Rethymnon, is one of the four provinces of Crete and it is a town that has retained its traditional look.You can see this as you stroll through its old, narrow lanes with the wooden balconies, the tall minarets and the Venetian mansions. The town is splited into the old and the new town. The new part of Rethymnon is built in a comfortable spacious and planned manner and with plenty of green spots. However, 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.
Hire a car with EconomyCarRentals and discover Rethymnon.
The endless sandy beach of Rethymnon starts from the town and stretches all the way to the centre. Among the most known beaches are Preveli and Plakias with other smaller ones nearby. An overwhelming amount of gift shops offer tourist souvenirs, as well as a variety of handicrafts such as pottery, baskets, woodcarving and woven goods. Enjoy also the nightlife, that ranges from noisy pubs and bars around the inner harbour or inside the old town, to more relaxed bars on the beach.
Enjoy your car hire in Rethymnon. The Fortress or "Fortezza", was built on the Palaeokastro hill by the Venetians, in order to strengthen the defences of the harbour. It had strong walls and four bastions. Inside the fortress there were public buildings, barracks, storerooms for ammunition and an army hospital. Visit also the Archaeological Museum of Rethymnon: It contains most important finds, like the figurines, jewellery, tools, spearheads of Neolithic times from the Gerani cave and the Ellenes Amariou cave.
