Ferry to Rethymno
Passengers travelling by ferry to Rethymno arrive at the third largest city of Crete after Heraklion and Chania!
Travelling to the Destination Rethymno
The city attracts a lot of Greek and foreign tourists every year and due to its students (2500) it is also during the winter very vibrant. There is a new port in the city for the ferry Rethymno and a Venetian port with a marina and berths for the yachts. Despite the missing airport (the next airports are in Heraklion and Chania) Rethymno has a well built touristic infrastructure. Due to many entertainment options (cycle path network, climbing, water sports, old town, weekly markets etc.) the city is popular with traditional tourists as well as with alternative tourist groups.
Tourists travelling to the destination ferry to Rethymno see many places of interest from Venetian times and from Ottoman times. The only excavation site of the city, which by the way dates back to the Late Minoan Age, consists of a family cemetery with about 200 rock-hewn graves. The finds of that site are displayed in the archaeological museums of Chania and Heraklion. Rethymno too, owns some museums; an archaeological, a church museum, a Historical and Folklore Museum, and a Museum of Sealife. Before the departure with ferries from Rethymno, tourists should schedule at least one day to visit some of the many buildings (sacral and secular buildings), churches (Tessaron Martyron, Agios Antonios, San Francesco) and museums (Kara-Mousa-Pascha, Neratzes, Sultan Ibrahim).
