Rethymno Guide

Located between the popular regions of Heraklion and Chania is the beautiful historic town of Rethymno, the third largest town on the island of Crete in Greece.

Rethymno is a place of outstanding natural wealth and a variation of landscapes, with flourishing valleys, harsh mountains and rocky shores following long sandy beaches. The east side of the region is mostly mountainous while the northern and southern coasts are dotted with fabulous beaches which are pretty popular in summer.

The city of Rethymno is one of the best preserved medieval towns in Greece, with Venetian fortification works, orthodox and catholic churches, mosques, grand Venetian mansions, arches and cobbled streets all together, creating this wondrous traditional atmosphere.

The Venetian port is probably one of the most popular spots of the Town. This small port was of great strategic importance during the Venetian period and has undergone numerous constructions since 1300. Nowadays, the port is lined up by cafes and delicious restaurants where you can enjoy the secrets of the Cretan cuisine.

Tinos Guide

The Greek island of Tinos is located in the north of the Cyclades group of islands and lies in the Aegean Sea. It is a perfect island destination for a relaxing family vacation where its beaches are sandy, with calm waters, and are surrounded by a good selection of tourist facilities and accommodation. The island's most traditional villages are located inland and are famous for their picturesque architecture and charm. The island's most characteristic village, with its long tradition of marble carving, is the village of Pyrgos. Tinos has a special place in the hearts of Greeks as it is the home of the Church of Panagia, which is considered to be the protector of the country, and contains a miraculous icon inside. The church receives thousands of pilgrims all year round, particularly on the 15th of August.

Tinos is connected by boat to the ports of Piraeus and Rafina and also to the islands of Andros, Syros and Mykonos, and to almost all of the Cycladic islands.
