Old Charm in Crete

By Linda Tancs

Rethymno, one of the four provinces of Crete, is its third largest city, offering views of the White Mountains in the West and Mount Psiloritis in the East.   There’s more to this metropolis than meets the eye, however.  In fact, there’s plenty of retro in this metro.  Consider the postcard-perfect harbor with its wooden boats.  Or the cobbled streets.  Or the fortress in the old town section, built by the Turks to protect against invaders.  Not to mention the Venetian-style mansions.  All this and great beaches, too.  Festival season starts later this month, so start packing.  Ferries depart daily from Athens.
